The Challenge - 3 students, 12 days, 1300 miles, £8000, London to Rome

This summer the three of us; Jonathan Quicke, Hamish Van Gruisen and Tom Kerridge will be cycling half a mile for every British soldier wounded in Afghanistan since 2001. In doing so we aim to raise money and awareness for 'Walking with the Wounded' and, the incredible sacrifices that are being made by our troops. 

Having persuaded Hamish that the Tour De France route was overly ambitious, we have settled for 1,300 miles from London to Rome cycling over 100 miles a day leaving on the evening of the 7th and aiming to reach Rome 12 days later. 

It's an incredibly worthwhile cause so please if you can support us along the way by following us here and on twitter (londontorome13) and if you can, please donate at
