The Countdown Begins

On 14 May, the Four Mikes on Bikes 2019 Fundraising Tour begins with Mike Carney and Mick Claridge departing Gerrards Cross and heading for the shores of Harwich, to be joined by Mike Burton and Father Michael Spain on Day 5. Before they all sally forth, the LASR has invited each Mike (along with support team Malcolm & Denese) to share their preparations – physical, mental and practical – for the 1,446 mile journey to Rome. Over the next few days we will discuss training (the good, the bad and the ugly), necessary gear (Did you think all you need is a bike? Oh no, gentle reader….), and the love of a good map. Stay tuned!

The Tour is raising money for the London & Slough Run; you can make a donation at
