Teams cycle 300 kilometres in 3 days to raise 300k for children in London

From 29-31 July 2012, three teams of riders took part in Les Trois Étapes, the ultimate pro-am cycle challenge, to generate funds for Friendship Works.

Les Trois Étapes is an extreme three-day race event to test the stamina, skill and endurance of cycling enthusiasts by putting them through three gruelling stages of the Tour de France. Each stage consists of flat, uphill and downhill sections.

Each amateur team was accompanied by a pro-cyclist. The Friendship Works riders were led by Tour de France winner 2008, Carlos Sastre.

Friendship Works are very proud of our teams and thrilled that through their hard work we have generated more than £300k to support children needing mentors.
