In order to raise money for cancer research every year some 5000 Dutch people go to the French Alpe-d’Huez mountain to cycle it up and down once, twice, three, four, five or ultimately six times in one day! The Dutch word for six is “zes” hence they call the event ‘Alpe d’HuZes’, in short ‘AD6’. Since the start of the Alpe d’HuZes-event in 2005 the Dutch cancer society; KWF has received some 10-12 million euros every year from Alpe d’HuZes!!!  So, go for it!
