Simon Ferguson and Tim Grimble have completed a challenge to cycle 700 miles in 7 days, from Paris to Nice, traversing 7 of the high cols of the Alps, raising over £1,800 for the JWCT. The pair, supported by Peter and Clare Grimble (Tim’s father and sister), covered an incredible 698 miles (1,124 km) during their gruelling cycle, notching up 59 hours 50 minutes in the saddle, and consuming over 17,500 calories.
Tough climbs included the Col de Glandon, 1,472 m of vertical ascent over 21.4 km of road, an average gradient of 7% . . .
