RAF Reservist Corporal Faye Hudson, on a 6-month deployment to Afghanistan, is taking part in a charity bike ride in Camp Bastion to raise money for War Child.
Serving with No 3 (Tactical) Police Squadron Police Reserves, Faye started Tour De Herrick on Saturday, 5 July, the same day as this year’s Tour De France, and will finish on Sunday, 27 July.
She is joined in this charity challenge by ‘Team MEP’, a group of army officials who work on the Main Entry Point and process the local Afghanistan workers daily into the Bastion and Leatherneck complex.
Using a static bike, Tour De Herrick will cover the same distance as the Tour De France - a total distance of 3,656 kilometres over 21 stages. Each rider will be on the bike for 12 hours or more and complete in excess of 160 kilometres.
Good luck to you all.
