Story

Hey! Thanks for visiting my sponsorship page. It's awesome that you're here, especially since we're all surrounded by so many worthy causes at this time of year. 

Here's a bit about mine. I've been commuting by bike for nearly seven years. Earlier this year I cycled across Belgium and parts of the Netherlands; I visited  Copenhagen. In all of these places I was amazed at the difference that good cycling provision makes - not just for cyclists. It creates healthier communities, a cleaner environment, safer and more livable urban spaces for everyone. It can even boost the economy.

London - and cities across the UK - can have this too. That's why I'm fundraising for the London Cycling Campaign. They are working hard to make London better and safer for everyone who cycles and wants to cycle, and inspiring similar work elsewhere. 

My challenge: I'm aiming to cycle 100miles across London this December, dressed top to ankle (the suit came with boot tops, but no boot toes) as Santa Claus. It will be sweaty, it will be red, and a dodgy beard will definitely be involved. 

This is my first fundraising challenge, so be gentle. If you see me in the street, say 'hi', stop for a chat, take a photo.

And please give whatever you can. No amount is too small. Or too big.

Huge, huge, huge thanks!

Denny

We did it! We smashed the target!! Thank you all, lovely people - for your kind messages, waves, toots, donations and good vibes for the girl in the beard. It will be hard to hang up the Santa suit, but it's about time I stepped aside and let the real Santa do his thing. D xx

Hello generous lovely friends and strangers (you know who you are)! About 60m in, and I've been overwhelmed by your response to cycling Santa! So much so, that I'm now aiming for £300, as the old target has well and truly been smashed. A huge 'thank you!' Denny x
