2011 sees the first Forlorn Hope Tour challenge – an arduous but exciting long-distance cycle ride for charity, created to test the limits of human spirit and endurance in the face of overwhelming and unrelenting adversity. And we’re starting at the top with what is popularly seen as one of the toughest challenges in sport – the legendary Tour de France.
Beginning September 4th and taking 21 days to complete, the 2011 Forlorn Hope Tour will retrace the route of the 2011 Tour de France bike race, covering 2,131 miles (3,410km) and climbing 23 mountain peaks, including three of the most famous tour climbs - Alpe d'Huez, Galibier and Tourmalet - and, at 2,744m, the Col d'Angel, highest ever summit.
Our aim is to raise £10 for every mile cycled, a total of £21,310, for the wildlife conservation charity Animals on the Edge.
