107 FOR 107
Starting on Friday December 16th 2017, I cycled 107 kilometres a day, every day, until Saturday April 1st. 107 days in total.
That's 11,449km - or the equivalent of cycling from London to Geneva, Switzerland - every week for 15 weeks in a row.
There's more challenges coming up in 2018. Stay tuned to find out.
WE ALL FACE CHALLENGES. SOME MORE THAN OTHERS.
The Pace Centre is a school dedicated to transforming the lives of children up to the age of 18 with motor disorders such as cerebral palsy. Completely self-funded, it's founded on the firm belief that every child has the ability to learn and make progress, whatever physical or sensory challenges they face.
Each of the 107 children that attend the school face their own monumental daily struggle. Every element of their day requires complex planning. Not only by the teachers - who create tailored programmes to fit each of the kids' needs - but also by their families just to get them to and from the school each day.
These kids are the inspiration for the challenges I take on. I know I'm bound to face a few struggles throughout the 107 days. But, then again, we all struggle.
At least 107 kilometres must be ridden each day. Roll-over is not allowed. All distance must be covered on the road or a Wahoo smart trainer due to their accuracy. Rollers are not allowed. Official distance uploaded to Strava.
I'm not a pro, I don't have a support crew, I do have a job. I wanted to see what it's like to live every day where every second needs meticulous planning. And if the smallest detail is omitted, the following day will be even harder. There's no chance to rest.
