Five non-cycling mums from Buckinghamshire have joined forces to take on L’Etape du Tour in order to raise awareness and money for autism.
Their end goal by July 19, is to have made more people aware of the needs of very young children with autism and to have raised funds to extend the services provided and already in great demand at Puzzle Centre.
Each of the riders either has a child on the autism spectrum or works at the charity’s early intervention centre.
The riders, who each had know idea what the race even was before hand, have had to learn to ride bikes all over again. And it seems like they’re loving it!
They will be testing their legs on the route of one of the mountain stages of the Tour de France, which this year runs over a over 142km course from Saint-Jean De-Maurienne to a summit finish at La Toussuire.
Keep up the good work ladies!
