Hello, everyone! My name is Veli and I'm currently completing a (mainly) solo cycle from Lisbon to Sofia via the coast (~6500 km). This is my first long distance cycling experience.I'm doing it to raise funds for the treatment of my little cousin Alex who has the rare Ewing's sarcoma bone cancer and needs a specialised (but expensive) treatment. I'm also trying to raise awareness of this disease as it often doesn't get caught until a late stage.
I'm currently close to Barcelona where I'll stay until the 02/06 then I'm heading up to France (I'm following the coast).
I was wondering if there are people looking to tag along or maybe help out by letting me get a warm shower at their house. I would also love to organise interactions with cycling clubs at the places I'm passing: talk/presentation of my cycle so far (I have some great photos and experiences to chat about) or a cycle together for a bit.
Here is the facebook page I keep most updated:
and the fundraising page:
Thanks! Looking forward to hearing from you guys!
