Royal road rage! Pippa Middleton might not be a blue blood by anything but marriage but when you get to sashay down the aisle of the Royal Wedding, you’re pretty much crowned in our books! Now Pippa and her famous derrière are making an almost as arduous trip: She’s biking across America!
While it may sound like a juicy tabloid headline, this one’s for real. Pippa, sister of the Duchess of Cambridge and aunt to the one-day King of England/cutest baby in the world Prince George, is cycling 3,000 miles across these United States of America.
She and her eight-person team will bike from Oceanside, California, to Annapolis, Maryland. The tires hit the asphalt this Saturday (June 14) so get your spare water bottles ready and prepare to line up alongside the road to give Pippa a greeting worthy of an almost royal.
But what could possibly possess Pippa to make the trek? She’s doing it for a good cause! Her friend James Matthews is also a member of the Race Across America team, which will raise funds for a charity named for James’s brother, People reports. Twenty-two-year-old Michael Matthews died in 1999 on his descent from Everest; he had been the youngest Briton to ever reach the top.
Pippa, you may not have a fancy title but you’ve got the philanthropy bit in the bag!
