Magazine editor resolved to ride to France for charity

UK/FRANCE: Zenon Schoepe, Resolution magazine editor and bike nut, is cycling to Paris. Not once, but twice, writes Dave Robinson. "In the year of my half century I felt stirred to do something good and worthwhile for a change so I am raising money for two charities by cycling London to Paris twice," a feisty Schoepe tells PSN-e.

UK/FRANCE: Zenon Schoepe, Resolution magazine editor and bike nut, is cycling to Paris. Not once, but twice, writes Dave Robinson. "In the year of my half century I felt stirred to do something good and worthwhile for a change so I am raising money for two charities by cycling London to Paris twice," a feisty Schoepe tells PSN-e.

The first trip is in aid of the Children's Country Holiday Fund. CCHF exists to provide severely disadvantaged Children and Young People (CYP) aged 7-11 with a range of Residential Activity and Respite Breaks. The aim is to improve the quality of their lives, recognise their potential and achieve their goal in the safest possible environment. Since its inception in 1884, CCHF has helped over 2.5 million Children and Young People.

The second time it's for Macmillan Cancer Support, which provides practical, medical, emotional and financial support for cancer sufferers and pushes for better cancer care.

"These events are pretty much back to back -- four days there, three days off and then four days there again," says Schoepe, who starts the challenge tomorrow, July 1. "It's about 950km total (depending on who you ask) and I'm asking anyone who is kind enough to donate to split the sponsorship between the two charities."
