On the 30th of August 4 men on the wrong side of 60 embarked on a bike ride that covered over 1000 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats. They cycled over 80 miles per day for 12 consecutive days, trying to raise a hugely ambitious £50 per mile for soldiers damaged by conflict.
‘LeJog’ is a big task, and to prepare their retired selves for it they traversed the country coast to coast 3 times, cycle 400 miles in 4 days and train, train, train – all while fundraising relentlessly.
The Rotarian Rouleurs follows their journey from middle-aged spread to strong men of the road.
A Rouleur is a ‘strongman’ who can ride all day, insatiably devouring the miles over rolling parcours. A Rotarian is a middle-aged retiree, who can organise a good raffle. What exactly a Rotarian Rouleur is remains to be seen.
