Pedalling with a Purpose: Ian's Inspirational Journey with Wattbike

March 03, 2024 2 min read

In the world of cycling and philanthropy, few stories are as compelling as that of Ian McMahon. A former professional footballer and businessman, Ian is embarking on a remarkable journey to make a significant impact. In June 2024, Ian will be tackling The Tour 21 on behalf of Cure Leukaemia, alongside 24 amateur cyclists as they look to complete the full Tour de France route one week ahead of the professionals.

As a proud supporter and partner, Wattbike is thrilled to share Ian's story, highlighting his commitment, the challenge ahead, and how you can be part of this incredible adventure.

A Commitment to Change

Ian's goal is not just to complete the tour but to contribute significantly to the cause. He has pledged to raise a minimum of £30,000 towards the event's £1 million target. This commitment speaks volumes about his dedication to making a difference. Through his Just Giving page, Ian is inviting us all to be part of this journey, offering a unique opportunity to contribute to a cause that transcends the sport itself.

The Cause and the Course

The Tour 21 is more than just a cycling event; it's a movement towards change, supporting vital charity work. Ian's participation is not just a test of physical endurance but a testament to his passion for the cause.

Together, we ride towards a future free from Leukaemia. The Atom has been a game-changer in my training regime. " Ian McMahon, Wattbiker
