More information about the event from the The Dallaglio Flintoff Cycle Slam website-
Between April 23rd and May 18th next year England rugby international, Lion, and World Cup winner Lawrence Dallaglio and England cricketing legend Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff will undertake the ride of their lives.
They will cycle the 2,872 km across Europe from the birthplace of the ancient Olympic Games – Olympia, in Greece – to the venue for next year’s Olympic Games – London.
It will raise funds for Cancer Research UK and Great Ormond Street Hospital via Lawrence and Freddie’s charitable foundations. In 2010 Freddie joined Lawrence on his ride from Rome to Edinburgh which raised over £1.4m for charity.
The route is made up of five stages, each of 4 or 5 days, with a rest day in between. The epic journey will take them up through Greece, the length of Italy, across the Alps, through the Champagne region, and take in the legendary one day Paris-Roubaix ride before reaching London. It is s a stunningly beautiful and challenging route.[/callout1]
