Pippa Middleton Set to Bike Across the USA for Charity

Showing her philanthropic side, Pippa Middleton has signed up to join a cycling team on a 3000+ mile ride across America.

The beautiful Brit will bike from Oceanside, California to Annapolis, Maryland beginning Saturday (June 14) as part of Race Across America with her brother James and friend James Matthews.

And all of the money raised by Pippa’s 8-man team will be donated to a charity named for Matthews’ brother Michael who died climbing Mount Everest.

Previously, Ms. Middleton wrote of her love for cycling in The Telegraph- “I’m no beginner when it comes to biking. I learnt to ride in the countryside around my parents’ house in Bucklebury, on a solid mountain bike with thick tyres designed to blast through mud and puddles. When, a couple of years ago, I completed the Highland Cross, a gruelling 20-mile fell run and 30-mile cycle race across Scotland, the hours I’d spent in the saddle in Berkshire’s rutted country lanes stood me in good stead.”
