Alpe d'Huez is the pinnacle!

Published: 19/11/15

It wasn't a difficult decision when local decorating supplier Kent Blaxhill approached us to sponsor them; as an organisation Flint actively seeks to take part in charitable work; they are a long-standing and valued client and lastly it looked like such an amazing thing to do, we had to say yes!

And so the Kent Blaxhill team set off mid September crossing the English Channel, driving south east of Paris to Troyes to take part in the Alpe d'Huez Challenge 2015.

Organised by the Challenge Adventre Charities, this year's Alpe d'Huez challenge is for teams of four cyclists to ride in relay around 450 miles from Troyes in the Champagne region of La Belle France, to the finish at the top of Alpe d'Huez, in the Central French Alps. As you can imagine this spectacular route takes in some of Europe's finest scenery offering participants stunning views, whilst challenging them both mentally and physically. Here's how the three days went:

  • Day 1: Troyes - Macon (186 miles)
  • Day 2: Macon - Lans en Vercor (175 miles)
  • Day 3: Grenoble - Alpe d'Huez (80 miles)

The total distance was a gruelling 450 miles that took in some spectacular alpine scenery. The last day concluded with a finish made famous by the Tour de Fance at the top of Alpe d'Huez.

Challenge Adventure Charities is a UK charity with no paid executives and run by volunteers who put together annual cycling events to raise money. This year's team entry fee of £1200 fully covered costs in France ensuring that 100% of sponsorship raised by each team is donated to charity. The goal for 2015 is to raise £250,000 for the designated charities of Cancer Research and the British Heart Foundation.

Obviously sponsorship money is still being collected so we've yet to hear the total raised, but we would like to say sincere congratulations to the Kent Blaxhill team – well done for taking on this arduous, stimulating and undoubtedly breathtaking challenge – we're almost jealous!
