Roy ready to roll!

Cicerone author Roy Clark sets out on a 1250-mile cycle ride from London to Slovenia in aid of the Alzheimers Society and Macmillan Cancer Support on Saturday 14 September. With Justi Carey, Roy is co-author of two Cicerone guides to walking in Slovenia - Trekking in Slovenia and The Julian Alps of Slovenia - and the forthcoming Walking in the Karavanke, as well as a contributor to the inspirational multi-author Trekking in the Alps.

A team of three will be riding from London to Ljubljana on road bikes - London to Harwich then taking the ferry to the Hook of Holland. They take in 7 countries in total, riding through the Netherlands, following the Rhine Cycle Route (also the subject of a forthcoming Cicerone guide), passing through Belgium and Germany before eventually crossing the Austrian and Italian Alps into Slovenia.

STOP PRESS: Roy and his team mates finished the ride on schedule on 2 October, despite several days of relentless rain as they crossed the Alps. So far they've raised £5355 plus £975 from gift aid tax relief on top but it's not too late to increase their total a bit - the charity giving page is still open at: www.charitygiving.co.uk/ltol.

Justi Carey and Roy Clark started visiting the British mountains in their teens, a discovery that has shaped their whole lives. Their passion for the outdoors has since led to travels across the world and a deep commitment to the environment, while their continuing interest in being 'out there' has resulted in an enthusiasm for skiing, canoeing, cycle touring, horse riding and even rollerblading! Since moving to Slovenia in 2002, Justi has worked as an English teacher, while Roy has developed his skills in landscape photography. They now run a Bed and Breakfast in the mountainous north-west corner of Slovenia.
