Pippa Middleton

British Heart Foundation

Pippa Middleton continues to amaze us!

Kate Middleton's sis impressively completed the tough, month-long cycling challenge "Race Across America" in June, raising more than £20,000 in donations. Now, the British Heart Foundation ambassador is auctioning off her signed, bespoke bicycle to raise funds for life-saving research for heart disease!

"The challenge of riding across the Rockies, coping with the heat of the Arizona desert and climbing over 170,000 vertical feet in the six days was incredibly tough, but every inch of the 3,000-mile race was worth it to help the BHF fight heart disease," the brunette said.

The Dassi road bike—worth £2,500—was specifically designed to enhance the 30-year-old's performance in the race and is expected to attract both cyclers and collectors. The auction went live on August 3 and will run for 10 days on BHF's eBay site.

"I wanted to complete this challenge to help raise awareness of the importance of heart health after learning that coronary heart disease kills nearly three times more women than breast cancer. So whether you're inspired to get fit or you're a cycling fanatic wanting to add to your bike collection, visit bhf.org.uk/ebay to bid now," Pippa encouraged. "I'm keen to raise as much money as possible to help the BHF fund life-saving heart research."

Half of the funds raised in the auction will also benefit the Michael Matthews Foundation, which educates children around the world.
