Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
You may know me as Black Jaguar, my real name is Brian. I have decided to make a southerly migration by bicycle from Loch Garten to Rutland water. I will be leaving Loch Garten on 23 April (St.Georges Day) and intend to arrive at Manton Bay on the Sunday 29 April.
I am a keen cyclist and have raised money in the past for CHAS and BoBath.. I decided that the Loch Garten Centre should be my target this time round after visiting and becoming part of the LG on-line community. I can see how much pleasure the Ospreys bring to so many people and I would just like to help the work at the centre continue.
I will set up a thread on the LG community before I leave and endevour to post each evening about the days events. This will also be open for anyone to contact me as I go south. If you are near my route I'd love to see you and if any cyclists would like to come along and chat on the wheel, I'd love to meet you.
Here's a wee summary of my route..
Day 1.23/4... Early train from Glasgow Queen Street. 07:06 arriving Aviemore 09:47. Cycle to Loch Garten. I hope to be at LG around 10:30. If, as I hope, some of you manage to be at the start that would be brilliant and a wee chat with you then off at 11:00. Destination, Pitlochry. a distance of around 65 miles.
Day 2.24/4... Pitlochry, via Vane Farm, Loch Leven and The Forth Bridge to Edinburgh approx. 90 miles.
Day 3.25/4... Edinburgh, over the border to Alnwick.. approx 85 miles.
Day 4.26/4... Alnwick, into North Yorkshire to Osmotherly. I think this will be a tough day another 90 miles approx.
Day 5.27/4... Osmotherly to Hull. approx 75 miles.
Day 6.28/4... Hull via The Humber Bridge to Boston, the terrain should be flattening out here so I hope to make good time.. 85 miles approx.
Day 7.29/4... Boston to Rutland Water. 40 miles approx Here the Challenge ends and I can relax. I still have 20 ish miles to Peterborough. Then for fun and to visit relatives and maybe meet up with Sugar, I'm off to Norwich on the Monday 30/4.. approx 80 miles.
3rd of May Train back to Glasgow from Norwich and cycle home.. back to work on the 5th...
Thank you everyone that has donated so far.. If you are thinking about it, please please do so.. as the saying goes.. every little helps.
Many thanks, Brian/Jag
