LifeCycle Challenge



Strait to Africa

Life Cycle was always going to leave Europe, and to celebrate the 10th anniversary it was decided to venture further afield. There were two obvious exits from Europe and one was the Strait of Gibraltar. With Lourdes being an important Christian site we decided that we would head into Morocco and finish at the King Hussein II mosque.

By doing this we were linking two continents, two religions for one cause. The route was beautiful throughout and there were some difficult times. Twelve cyclists dropped out during this challenge, the highest number since 2003 and this once again emphasised just how difficult this event really is.

Cyclist David Armstrong compiled a personal diary during this trip, which you can view or download by clicking below.
