I am going to make a cycling trip of at least 4000 km from Germany to Portugal. On my way I want to raise funds for shark protection and awareness for the bad conditions of the maritime ecosystem.
Since many years I observe by myself the dramatical change of quantity and abundancy of life in te ocean. Two of the most harmful influences of the human to the sea are overfishing and pollution. Project AWARE fights against this two issues with a lot of passion. They have achieved some victories already and deserve to be supported.
The idea of my challenge is to go 2 km by bike for every Euro that I can raise for project AWARE. My tour from Germany to Portugal will be in total between 4000 km and 5500 km long. I will take 17 kg of equipment with me on my bike. The tour will take about 6 - 8 weeks. I have raised almost 1500 € so far. If I win the boost of 5000 pound, I will think of an extra, I can make.
For training I made more than 3000 km. More information about the project on http://cycle4sharks.lucas-schmitz.com
