What better way to celebrate #charitytuesday than by shouting about what this amazing 12 year old just took on, and all in aid of Kids Run Free!
For the 3rd year in a row, Gavin Siebert has taken on a notable Tour de France bike climb!
Gavin’s goal this year was a back-to-back double ascent of France’s famed Mont Ventoux. During this past half-term Gavin set off on his bike from Bédoin (just like the pros do in the Tour de France), reaching the summit of Mount Ventoux and then descending into the town of Sault, only to turn around and climb a second time to the top of the mountain with a final descent back to Bédoin.
The total ride was 94.3 km with more than 2,790m of climbing (that’s 9,200ft!!!) – all in one go. As in previous years, Gavin challenged himself to raised £1 for every metre climbed. He raised an almighty £2,850 for our charity, bringing his 3 year total to a very impressive £6,142.
We’re blown away by what Gavin took on and want to say a huge thank you to him. What an inspiration…
