David Smye UPDATE TO BELOW: All going well, cycled 100km (62miles) yesterday, to date completed 413 miles, 87 miles to go. The 500 miles is to be completed by the 4th July. Given my great progress I’ve decided once I virtually arrive at Bordeaux, I will turn round and head back to Bristol ANOTHER 500 miles !!!

Follow me on:


Am I crazy, please recognise my efforts and sponsor this great little charity. Thanks all xxx

Hello and thank you for visiting my fundraising page. In normal times I had taken the pledge to ride to Bordeaux from Bristol, a distance of 500 miles over 4 days, with all the attendant training that is required to complete the task.

Due to the COVID crisis the B2B ride which is the PROPS main annual charity fundraising event was cancelled, and this financial life line cut . PROPS do fantastic work supporting young adults with learning disabilities to lead full lives and gain independence.

In place of the event I have pledged to complete the 500 miles on the roads around Bristol, Somerset & Gloucestershire, please help me to achieve my target. NOW DOUBLED

It’s a great cause, and your donation will help them achieve even more. Donating is easy, quick and secure.

Please share with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter – and elsewhere – so I can reach my target and together we can help PROPS do more. Thank you! David Smye
