Charity ride for END POLIO NOW
We’re raising funds to end polio now (please have a look at the official site) and we have created a team of four (partially) fit guys to pedal up the impressive Cerro São Miguel Mountain in the Algarve. Wow, I had a shudder when I heard we had to cycle up there. However, it’s for a great cause so I have enlisted four good friends and we’re doing it on the 20th November 2017 through our local Rotary Club. Here’s more info:
When will this happen?
It will take place on the 20th of November, to coincide with major fund raising bike rides taking place in the States. Any money we raise will be matched 2 to 1 by the Bill Gates Foundation so this is a good opportunity to raise a substantial amount. The ride will start at the Pousada and finish as the cafe in Estoi Square in front of the church. Please support the Rotary Foundation in their centennial year with this event.
We’ll start at a little village called Estoi and work our way up the mountain on a 35km route. We’re not sure of the exact way yet but there will be definitely people fitter than us that we can follow!
