On 10 July 2022, I will join 16000 cyclists trying to cycle 167km and climbing more than 4700 metres on what will be the 12th and hardest stage of this year's Tour de France. I will do it to raise funds for The Lénaïc Fund for Quality Journalism http://lenaic.eu/ which is seeking to kick start its funding efforts after an enforced lull caused by the pandemic. The Fund, set up in honour of Lénaïc, a pioneering journalist in EU and particularly trade affairs, who was taken from us far too early, helps young female journalists from all over the EU get a first traineeship in EU journalism, setting them up for a career reporting on EU affairs. Having funded 7 fellows, this effort will kick off funding for an 8th fellow, to be recruited towards the end of the year. I did this in 2019 and we managed to raise over €3000 then. Let's try to better that !
