Pioneering spirit of traveller to be honoured in charity bike ride

THE PIONEERING spirit of a traveller murdered in India is set to be honoured during a ten-day charity bike ride.

Barford resident Ryan Neuvel is gearing up to pedal 750 miles from Guernsey to Amsterdam to raise money for the Sarah Groves Foundation.

The ‘Tour de Sez’ sets off on September 7, and will pass through four countries, before ending in the Dutch capital.

The charity was founded following the killing of 24-year-old Sarah Groves, who was from Guernsey, during her travels in India in 2013 – where she planned to volunteer and train to be a yoga instructor.

Ryan, who is a friend of Sarah’s family, said: “This event is important to me because it is imbued with the spirit of Sarah, something I deeply resonate with, the things she loved and the causes she cared for.”

The organisation aims to achieve Sarah’s ambition to enhance the lives of young people, especially those less fortunate than herself.

The charity has funded several projects including a drop in centre for toddlers and parents, and trips for students with learning difficulties. Visit to donate.
