Those of you who know Adrian won't be surprised to hear that only a few months after completing the 333 challenge and cycling Land's End to John O'Groats, he's already planning next year's challenge. It's a big one so over to Adrian to explain! "I heard some fantastic news today, that I have a place in next year's Tour de France! Not the actual race with all the professionals however, because I'm not that good but instead I'm joining a team of fellow amateurs to complete every mile of the race circuit just seven days beforehand. So I guess I'll be one of the first to Paris!

It's been a dream of mine for over five years - to take part in the 100th Tour De France - so this news is just brilliant.  I tend to do some kind of fundraising challenge every year; in fact this year I completed the 333 challenge in June then within a couple of weeks took part in Ena Shaw's LEJOG,  between them raising over £18,000 for great causes.

This year I'm aiming for an even bigger target so will be looking for companies to get involved and sponsor each stage in some way - any ideas would be very welcome. Again, all the focus will be on helping worthy charities and we plan to keep you up to date with our progress and our every move with version 2 of the tracking website that we created for this year's event.

It's a very exciting year ahead and I guess lots of training is now required as well. Watch this space for more details over the coming months!"
