TL Dallas’ Jeremy Burnham to ride The Hiscox Tourmalet Challenge

Looking for some inspiration to get you through the week, how about this?

In just under 4 weeks, on Friday 8th July, TL Dallas’ Jeremy Burnham will join a team of brokers and Hiscox staff for the Hiscox Tourmalet Challenge, cycling Stage 8 of the 2016 Tour de France the day before the professionals.

The gruelling challenge from Lourdes to Bagnères-de-Luchon covers 148 km and includes four seriously steep mountain climbs, not least the iconic Col du Tourmalet which reaches 2115m.

Jeremy is no stranger to fundraising challenges having completed a ‘Penguathlon’ in 2013. This was a three day event cycling from Leeds to Newcastle (106 miles), running the Great North Run the following day (13.1 miles) and then cycling back to Ilkley (100 miles) the next day – while dressed as a penguin!

For the Hiscox Tourmalet Challenge the team of 42 aim to raise a total of £25,000 for charity. Each member of the team has picked their preferred charity and Jeremy has choosen the TL Dallas Charitable Trust with funds going to Alzheimer Scotland, British Heart Foundation, Candlelighters, Mind, Sedbergh Youth & Community Centre and The Joshua Project.

So, while Jeremy heads out to the Yorkshire Dales to continue his training perhaps you would consider sponsoring him at www.justgiving.com to support his fantastic challenge.

Good luck Jeremy!
