One of the things that amazes me most in this city (in terms of transportation) is how big cycling has become in the last few years in London. Cycle hire systems are becoming the norm in this city, such as the Barclays Bikes. You may also see young professionals looking like they are about to start le Tour de France every single morning, as well as London hipsters on their old bikes, etc.s But that is nothing if we compare it with Enrico’s next adventure.

I had the chance to meet this cycle lover yesterday and his enthusiasm almost made me get on my bike and ride with him. Thankfully, I thought about it twice. Why? Because Enrico is organizing a charity event and he and a few friends will cycle from London to San Severino Marche in Italy!

By doing so, Enrico wants to raise funds for the newly opened ‘Bartolomeo Eustachio Hospice in San Severino Marche’. Also, it is his chance to thank the staff of the Oncology department of the same Hospital for the hard work and dedication they put into their job; And to thank them for their care and support they provided for his father.

After listening to his story, Clink Hostels decided to support his idea and will become their starting point! How is Clink going to help Enrico and his friends in their adventure? Dead easy. From today we will be selling cycling-themed t-shirts and all the money will be given to the Bartolomeo Eustachio Hospice.

Help us! Get involved and buy a t-shirt from the Travel Shop! They are only £12 and the best possible way to give a hand to Enrico and his friends! And do not forget to cheer them up from 9.30 am tomorrow morning at the main entrance of Clink 78!
