Reto Pelayo Vida Annapurna - 300 km against cancer




Sometimes life goes by between routine and calm. Sometimes, unexpected events break into this haven of peace. You can pass over them, face them, evade from them or try to undestand them and bring out the best of you.


This last choice is the motto for the 4th edition of Reto Pelayo Vida, that will take 5 women who have been through and overcame a breast cancer, to ride across the Annapurna Valley. 


It's a real phisycal and mental challenge, in which they will go mountainbiking over 300km at heights that will reach 4.300 metres, between the cities of Pokhara and Lo Manthang, in nepal. All the braveness,personal self-confidence, resilience or mental strength and the sense of group that they've been developing turing their illness will be essential to achieve this goal. 


Next Tuesday 13th november those 5 adventurers will depart for Nepal to start the adventure of their lives, demonstrating that Cancer is not the end but a starting point.


Begoña Valderrama, the voice tof this group of brave women, pointed that "more than an illness, I call it my chance to change my life and turn it into the place where I want to live”. A nice lesson to be learnt by anyone.






There are now 526 women that have already taken part in this Reto Pelayo Vida, during their 4 editions. And this time Gobik will support them donating their cycling garments during all their adventure.
