Extra Mile - Recce Report 2016
We’re challenging teams of 4 to ride this spectacular 500 mile route, in relay, mostly on minor roads. Each cyclist will cover about 45 miles per day, typically in 4 or 5 stages.
You don’t need to be an experienced cyclist or athlete to take part, but you’ll need to be reasonably fit, so start training now! Those particularly keen could cycle in pairs and increase mileage!

75% of your team’s sponsorship goes to the charity of your choice. The remainder (plus all gift aid claimed) goes to three others chosen by the Organisers and to Rotary charitable funds. Our first 13 challenges have raised over £1.25m for charities. As in prior years, each team must raise a minimum of £1,200 sponsorship by 20 December 2016 as a condition of entry.

Nancy to Mulhouse Day 1

We start the Lake Geneva Challenge in Nancy, a riverfront city in north-eastern France, known for its late baroque and art nouveau landmarks, some dating to its days as the former capital of the Duchy of Lorraine. In 1871, Nancy remained French when Prussia annexed Alsace-Lorraine.

Mulhouse Day 2

Mulhouse became one of France’s leading textile centres in the nineteenth century and also around that time started to make machinery, particularly railroad equipment. Mulhouse is famous for its museums, especially the Cité de l’Automobile and the Musée Français du Chemin de Fer, respectively the largest automobile and railway museums in Europe.

Mulhouse To Montreux Day 3

Montreux is a resort town on the eastern end of Lake Geneva. It’s known for its mild climate and the Montreux Jazz Festival, held in July. The town’s celebrated lakeside promenade is lined with flowers, sculpture, Mediterranean trees and belle epoque buildings. Just offshore is its 13th-century island castle, Château Chillon, with double ramparts, a moat and a chapel with 14th-century murals. Montreux is where we will rest on the final night and party at our Gala dinner in the towns Casino on the shore of Lake Geneva. Extra Chips anyone?
