The Richie Johnson – Lifehouse – Lionheart Project

A rider with us before, a rider he will be again. A friend, a comrade in the saddle, as brave as a lion. We want to support our Richie and make a difference to a very worthy cause. Please read his words below…..

Richie Johnson Bike Odyssey tour Lionheart Charity

“The Lionheart….
Richard I, was the second son of Henry, who rose to be Monarch of the Plantagenet empire in his mid-twenties. Richard led the 3rd great crusade and was renowned as a warrior and leader, loved by his subjects and revered by his enemies. A King of England that never spoke the language. A King that never shied from a challenge, or a worthy cause:

There is no greater champion than Chris O’Brien Lifehouse in the battle against cancer.

Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the treatment and care of those people and their 

affected by this insidious indiscriminate disease. 

I know. I’m one.So, take up the challenge – ride with Sam and I and become the cycling warrior you always wanted to be.

Follow in the footsteps of the Lionheart, and join the crusade against cancer; be inspired by the people you meet, the places you see, the challenges you’ll face and the lives upon which you will have a positive impact.”
