Jon Thraves Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. On the 3rd of July I will start the 500 miles cycle all the way from Bristol to Bordeaux With a target of over 125 miles every day for 4 days this is pretty daunting and the a daily distance is much longer than I have ever attempted or accomplished before and I expect to be physically and mentally challenged far harder than any previous pavement plodding (before I took up cycling I thought marathon running was a challenge)!

Most importantly I am supporting PROPS, a Bristol based charity doing fantastic work helping supporting young adults with learning disabilities to lead full lives and gain independence. PROPS stands for Providing Opportunities and Support. PROPS provide training in workplace skills which are then put into practice in real worthwhile work placement. PROPS also provide opportunities to learn life skills such as cooking and gardening, money skills, communication skills, health and safety, road safety. Sport provides mental and physical wellbeing and some students will take part in the Bristol to Bordeaux ride, having learned to ride a bike with PROPS. B2B represents the Charity’s major source of income having raised over £100,000 last year and is very important to maintaining these amazing opportunities.

All riders in the event pay for their own expenses and unlike other fundraising sites this site takes no commission so every penny raised will go to PROP.

I really hope you can help me achieve my target.
