Having completed John O’Groats to Land’s End on a bike in 11 days in 2015 in aid of Salisbury Hospice, 2016 was a year off from any serious biking challenges (apart from the odd 100 miler or two!).
2017 is a different story! In just under 2 weeks time I will be embarking on a 4 day 140 mile trek off road through the Lake District, taking in some stunning scenery and seriously challenging climbs (roughly 16,000 feet in total!) and descents over some very rugged terrain that will test both bikes and riders to their limits. This will be done carrying all clothing and gear for the expedition – there is no support vehicle!
The ride is being done in aid of the Yorkshire Cancer Centre Appeal which raises funds for St James’s Institute of Oncology (Jimmy’s) in Leeds, which provides specialist medical equipment, research and development and patient ‘home comforts’ for cancer patients.
If anyone feels able to sponsor me for the event I will be extremely grateful. You can make a donation via the following Just Giving link. This link also provides a bit more information on the charities and the crazy fools who have taken up the challenge!
Watch out for details of Bournemouth to Paris in aid of Julia’s House later this year!
Thanks for your continued support.
