    20 MAMILs cycle from Paris to Bordeaux for Charity

    12 April 2018

    A group of 20 residents from Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire are preparing to cycle from Paris to Bordeaux. The team began their charity fundraising last year by cycling from Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire to Paris in three days and raised over £28,500. This year the team will start at the Eiffel Tower 2nd May, where they finished last year and cycle some 400 miles to Bordeaux in 4 days on 5th May.

    The ambitious amateur cyclists are currently fundraising to support three charities that many of the team have close personal links with:

    • Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital
    • St David’s Hospice Care
    • Pink Ribbon Foundation

    John Bercow MP for Buckingham said, “I am delighted to commend those taking part in this gruelling challenge for such a worthy cause. I hugely admire their efforts. I wish them the best of luck as they complete their journey”.

    The team hopes to raise over £20,000 and having already raised over £7,000 to date.

    Journey to Bordeaux
    The MAMILs are set to depart from Eiffel Tower at 9:00 am on 2nd May cycling 80 miles to Orléans by 3:00 pm.

    On day two, the team faces a challenging day of cycling 121 miles to Châtellerault. While day three will see the team cycle 102 miles from Châtellerault to Cognac. The final fourth day has the triumphant arrival into Bordeaux with a 20 strong peloton at Place de la Bourse, Quai du Maréchal.

    The amateur cyclists range in age from 41 to 52. Capitalising on their passion for cycling while contributing to good causes that have helped many of the cyclist’s families; the group have sought to make the journey an annual affair. In addition to being Dads and working full time in high-pressured jobs not to mention the recent weather has made finding time for the lengthy weekend training rides challenging.

    The idea started with Long Crendon residents Alex Koch de Gooreynd and Sam Hassan, both of whom wanted to be able to cycle from Long Crendon village, initially to Paris and beyond. Commenting on the success of last year’s ride, Alex said, “last year’s success has spurred us on to push ourselves to cycle further afield. This is a fantastic team that sought to take on this challenge”.

    Amateur cyclist Sam Orwin commented: “I undertook this cycle challenge last year to fundraise for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital (GOSH) following my daughter’s spinal surgery and St David’s Hospice Care, a cancer hospice, who were providing palliative care for my twin brother. Thanks to the generosity of many well-wishers, we raised a staggering £28,500”.

    Sadly, my twin brother passed away just before Christmas following my daughter’s second round of surgery at GOSH. We have undertaken to ride further this year to fundraise for these incredible charities and for those who rely on them. Since we returned from Paris two of our team members partners’ were diagnosed with breast cancer, so we are also fundraising for the Pink Ribbon Foundation, which provides grant funding for breast cancer hospices and research.

    I have seen first-hand the palliative care offered by St David’s to its patients and their families as they battle life threatening conditions and the lifeline they offer families during these difficult times. Such hospices are vital to the dignity of patients and choices faced by families living with terminal conditions and they can only continue this work with our support”.

    Hi I live in the area and listen to the station all the time! Was just getting in contact as I'm in a band and was wondering weather you'd have some space to play some local music on your station. we (Nightjar) are a young female fronted trio who play all originals. If you'd like to know more about us I'll leave some links to our music and social media below.


    Thanks and keep up the good work,
