The Tour de France’s challenging first leg, which this year takes in the Yorkshire Dales, is attracting some committed optical cyclists keen to raise funds for Optometry Giving Sight and its supported charity, Vision Care for Homeless People.
This new dimension of the king of racing challenges takes in a choice of 50, 100 or 190km legs from the centre of Leeds, through some tough riding across the Yorkshire Dales, to a stunning finish in the historic spa town of Harrogate.
Elaine Styles, Chair of Vision Care for Homeless People, will be setting off for the challenge on 24th August and has just launched her Just Giving page click here for those who are keen to support the charity in a less physical way.
“This is a great opportunity to “get on yer bike” and really raise awareness of the wonderful work that we are doing in providing vision correction for the dispossessed. The generous funding over the next three years by Optometry Giving Sight is vital for us and we are keen to get as many as we can pedalling for the cause,” said Elaine.
