About Us

fatblokesonbikes are Iain and Adam.

Turning 40 usually means the start of a mid life crisis, the purchase of a convertible sports car and a desperate grab for any remaining youth…. not for these two. 2017 signalled the 40th year for both of  us and we were determined to do something that was a) exciting, b) memorable and c) beneficial to others so we cycled 300 miles from London to Paris for charity.


We raised over £7,000 for the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity, a fantastic organisation that provides help, care and support to terminally ill children and their families. Unfortunately Adam had first hand experience of their excellent support and we rode in memory of Adam and Kate’s daughter Iris

This blog is a record of that journey, everything leading up to it and our future adventures
