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

With Justi Carey, Roy Clarke is co-author of three Cicerone guides to walking in Slovenia: The Slovene Mountain Trail, The Julian Alps of Slovenia and Walking in Slovenia: The Karavanke. Roy is also a contributor to the inspirational multi-author Trekking in the Alps.

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.
