Paris2Nice. Nigel pedals through France for the Laura Lynn Foundation

You may have heard about Henry Tindal’s solo cycle to Australia a few months ago, well Nigel Werner our Director of Fine Wine is peddling through France for charity. He’s slightly older than Henry, so we’ll forgive him for stopping short of Sydney! Nigel has been training for months and is looking well on it ;-).

Most of you probably already know, but the Laura Lynn charity is Ireland’s only children’s hospice and is a massively worthy charity. Nigel has donated special bottles from his cellar, hosted a wine tasting and is now cycling to Nice in aid of the cause. I think the least we can do is show our support through sponsorship! Please click here to donate. Below are details of the trip.

You can find details about the cycle on the Laura Lynn site here. And for those interested in the route, here is the itinerary:
