ColaLife Participation Ride 2011 | Call for expressions of interest

Calais to Copenhagen Route Map

In September last year three of us cycled from Boulogne to Biarritz (B2B) to raise money for ColaLife. We raised nearly £6,000 and this money is being used to fund the trips to Zambia to work with partners there to develop the plan for a pilot of ColaLife. We will build on the fun and success of last year’s ride and are planning a second ride between 2-11 September 2011, this time from Calais to Copenhagen (C2C – there is a pattern here!). We will be cycling for 8 days and will cover about 700 miles. There will be places for five people and our fund-raising target will be £2,000 each. The plan will be to catch a ferry to Calais in the late afternoon on Friday 2 September and arrive in Copenhagen on Saturday, 10 September. We will then probably return by air. I will be leading the ride again. Nigel Bolding, of The World’s Best Hotels, will also be participating again and will be organising the accommodation. And again, Jane Berry will be leading on the planning of the route but will not be participating.

This is a call for expressions of interest in participating – no commitment at this stage. Full details will be issued over the next few weeks. If you’d like to receive more details please either comment on this post or email me: simon [at] colalife [dot] org

    I am very interested in this. I grew up in Grand Junction, CO and worked at The Bike Shop during high school. We would ride over the Colorado National Monument often during the summer months. Now I am in Austin, TX and am training for a marathon and use my road bike more for commuting, but I have the endurance and the mental strength for this. Please let me know more information when you have it. Thank you, and Happy New Year!
