Crazy? Inspirational? You decide!

After previously taking part in the Paris-Roubaix Challenge back in 2015, Andrew Redman is once again taking on the Legend of the Hell of the North in 2024 to raise funds for Cure Leukaemia.

From learning that his friend was interested in taking it on, Andrew couldn’t resist another attempt at the infamous cobbles of Roubaix.

“Well I said I’d never do it again, but a good friend hasn’t done it and I was easily persuaded! I did it back in 2015, and I remember it just being an amazing experience. It was a very tough route, so I’m pretty excited to be taking it on again and becoming a part of Team CL.

When asked what he was most looking forwards to about the challenge, he was very quick to answer – the velodrome.

“The velodrome, as that’s the finish and if it’s anything like last time, this will be pretty special again. The camaraderie, the après beer, the roadside support and knowing I’m raising money for a good cause.”

Andrew is no stranger to charity bike rides having completed several in the past after sadly experiencing the effects of cancer within his family.

“Signing up for CL was an easy decision to make and helped my decision immensely when my friend asked me to join him. I do a lot of charity rides and organise charity rides for a local charity as this is close to my heart having lost both parents to cancer, so helping another leading cancer charity is a big deal.”

“I am aways on my bike as much as I can, but I recently had a new hip so I am little bit behind the curve with training……and also the small matter of Christmas. But I am confident that once the New Year comes, all eyes will be on Paris in 2024!”

Cure Leukaemia announced in November that they had become the Official UK Charity Partner of the Paris-Roubaix Challenge.

There is still chance to join Team CL at the Paris-Roubaix Challenge in 2024. This is your chance to shake, rattle and roll along the famous Paris to Roubaix cobbled route on the day before the pros, finishing in the legendary velodrome in Roubaix. Paris-Roubaix will test your endurance levels and bike handling skills like few other sportives can.
