The C4C team – who even have the support of pop star Rihanna – will set off from Ancona, Italy, on October 5th and cycle 850km over six days to Antibes via a special “Tribute Stage”.
The Tribute Stage, from San Remo through Monaco, on Friday October 10th, 2014, is open to all riders for a charitable fee of €350.
100% of funds raised will go direct to the charities, with riders providing their own funding for the ride and sustenance en-route provided by Gourmet Deliveries.
Riders can be followed in real-time on the C4C website (www.cogs4cancer.org) thanks to satellite devices provided by Yellowbrick; Marine Medical will be providing first aid support.
C4C cyclist Steve Crowe, MD of Yachting Pages, commented, “Everyone has their own story as to why they’re riding, but it is also an opportunity for the yachting community to give something back and to honour the memory of so many friends lost to this terrible disease.”
Once again HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco is generously sponsoring Adrian Long who is participating for the second year running despite having a brain tumour.
