Story

It's time to shake the cob webs off the bike, drag it out of the shed, blow up the tyres and start training for a bike ride next January in order to raise, hopefully with your assistance, much needed funds for three Children's Charities -Teenage Cancer Trust, ChildLine and Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy. In still difficult economic times such as now Charities tend to suffer greatly so its even more important that we help as much as we can. As is the case with all our Truants I will be paying all costs related to the ride personally so every penny donated goes to the Charities. Nordoff Robbins collect and account all donations before sharing equally with the other two charities.

 

We set off on Jan 24 2014 for Simm Reip via Singapore , then up early the next day to spend the morning choosing and checking our bikes, which are supplied, and add necessities like a gel saddle to avoid the total destruction of our nether regions. Over the following 48 hours we will cycle over 100 miles after which any survivors will take a deep bath, apply various muscle creams and perhaps a few celebratory beers.

Hope you're coping in all that heat. I'm in LA! So I figured I should do some good and donate to a worthy cause, rather than spending all my money at The Rainbow! Good luck!
