The team here at La Blanquette are delighted to support ‘The Marvélos’ in their epic fund raising effort!

The Marvélos are riding their bicycles 750km from Devizes in Wiltshire to the Dorodgne region in France, in order to raise money for four chosen charities.

The Marvélos team is made up of riders Nik, Jas (La Blanquette hosts!), Shelly, Stuart F, Andy, Mark, and Stuart B with support team Tamasin, Lisa, Shannon and Cheryl who will be driving the backup vehicles.

The four great charities that the team are riding for are:

Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Bath Cats and Dogs Home, The Royal British Legion and the Dordogne’s own Phoenix Association.

 Being rugger fans, they will be starting the epic bike ride on Saturday 24th October 2015 (arriving in Portsmouth to watch the first Rugby World Cup semi-final!) and aim to reach their destination in South West France on Saturday 31st October 2015 in time for the final!

Follow them on Facebook and Twitter to see their training updates and get the latest news while they are riding!
