Laurence is the son of Anita Smith, who set up the Bansang Eduational Appeal charity. He is the youngest participant in the Three Peaks Challenge. He generally prefers to be on his bike to being on foot, and has cycled
John O'Groats to Land's End twice as well as from Banjul (capital of Gambia) to Bansang along 200 miles of pot-holed roads, definitely not the easiest of challenges during the rainy season. While the rest of the group are enjoying a comfortable bed the night before the challenge, Laurence is opting to camp. he's looking forward to a different challenge though.
