The Peaky Climbers Book Released – How Eight Amateur Cyclists Became Kings of the Mountains.
Raising over £60,000 for British Lung Foundation and Caring Cancer Trust.
LONDON, OCTOBER 12, 2018 — Eight friends take on the greatest challenge of their lives, to cycle 20 peaks of the Tour de France in seven days. Their adventure will take them beyond what any of them expected, through epic highs, dramatic lows, unforgettable scenery and the toughest days of cycling any of them have ever encountered. But will they make it to the finish line?
The book encapsulates the gruelling 7 day challenge, plus the year leading up to it – The sheer amount of training required, the commitment and support from their families, and the incredible pressure to raise the £30,000 target they set themselves for the charities selected.
Founder of the Peaky Climbers, and co-author of the book, Paul McIntosh says:
“My mother died 10 years ago (2007) and I was turning 50 (Sep 2017) – this drove me to think of a difficult challenge that would be something really different. This combined with a young local girl, Maisie Norton, who died of Cancer aged 17 all went into the thought process. LeJog was too ordinary, so the King of the Mountains challenge was the one.”
“A seriously impressive achievement. Eye-watering on paper and just plain barbarous in the flesh!”
Simon Warren, author of 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs of the Tour de France
“An unbelievable team effort in aid of two amazing charities. I would love it if you would read this book, just love it….” Kevin Keegan, Former England Manager and Professional Footballer.
A gripping, fascinating read about the lengths The Peaky Climbers go to raise money for the amazing charities – the British Lung Foundation and Caring Cancer Trust.
The book will be released on 12th October 2018 by Brown Dog Books, Bath, England.
