Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I will be attempting to cycle 60 miles from London Pickett's Lock to Midsummer Common in Cambridge on the 28th July 2013.  Quite a target for a self confessed soap opera loving couch potato! The training is well under way and I am beginning to see (and feel!) the enormity of the challenge. Please help to make sure the pain is not in vain! I am raising money for the local Wildlife Trust and your donation will be used towards protecting and caring for wildlife across Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire & Northamptonshire.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now. Thank you! :o)

Well, I did it! Had an amazing day - weather was perfect and the only few spots of rain hit us just as we got back to Cambridge. I completed the 60 mile challenge in just over 6 hours. Thanks to everyone who sponsored me. There's still time to if you haven't yet. It did hurt!

Less than 1 week now until the big day! My knees and hips are starting to ache in anticipation of the impending pain! Thank you to everyone who has already sponsored me for this challenge. I have so far raised £315 - it would be great to get to £500 in sponsorship by Sunday...

Well, less than 6 weeks until the big day - yikes! With training rides of 22, 34, 41 and 25 miles now under my saddle, I'm feeling slightly more confident of completing the 60 miles - and living to tell the tale! Please sponsor me if you haven't done so already? Thanks everso!
