Please join us in giving Andrew Morrisey, Senior Lifestyle Consultant at The Dragon Health and Fitness Club a big round of applause as he returns from his endeavours at this year’s Tour De France. In his own words, this is how he fared:
My cycling adventure consisted of cycling 7 stages of the 2010 Tour de France, the biggest cycling event in the world. In total I cycled 1092km over 7 days. The stages that I completed involved the Prynennes Mountains. These are home to some of the most gruelling mountain climbs including the Col Du Tourmalet which I climbed twice. Each day I was cycling for a minimum of 7 hours and covering distances over 180km with hills that would take from 1 hour to 3 hours. I also took part in the etape the biggest amateur event, this year 10,000 people took part with only 6,000 finishing, I managed to complete this day after already doing 3 days cycling. I enjoyed doing this and now I am aiming to complete the whole tour de france next year!
