    Story

    In July 2018, i'm hoping to travel to Nicaragua with World Challenge for 3 weeks to eat, sleep and live with the local communities, and to help do up a local school. on the way we will be trekking over dramatic landscapes and absorbing the culture of central america, along with painting doors, laying bricks and teaching locals english. Nicaragua is a poor country, especially compared to my comfortable lifestyle in London, therefore i am extremely passionate about trying to help in any way I can. to raise this sum of money, my mum and I will be cycling an exhausting 250 miles from Bristol to Land's End, (imagine the bickering..), bearing in mind that neither of us are elite cyclists and there are plenty of hills on the way. i'm hoping to raise my target of £3500, but if i don't i will make up the short fall with tough-mudder challenges, abseils and a 24-hour rowathons(!) with 4 mates. any amount of money is gratefully received; we are gonna need some incentive to get on those bikes..! please sponsor us, and help me tackle this once-in-a-lifetime expedition.

      summary of highs: carrot cake at Bridgewater, long flat Somerset levels (in the sun, of course), the Cumpston clan gathering at Taunton, victorious blackberries by Cornish borders, eating my bodyweight of biscuits at every single B&B, spending 8 hours a day cycling with my crazy mother (she's actually not as bad company as one would think), diving into bed at 7.30 every night, ordering a cheeky Dominoes to Redruth B&B, seeing the Land's End signpost on the edge of a cliff facing the sea, filming our Loldark saga (starring mum as DeSMELLza)

      waaaahhhhh !!! target accomplished! i'm sorry about such a late response - i've had an overwhelmingly relaxing week camping in Cornwall with no internet nor biking (ha ha ha). though relief conquered all pains in our backsides, mum and i sorta pine for those bikes, winding countryside and an aim. of course, Nicaragua was the aim of this bike trip, but i also thought of all of you as i ploughed through counties on end. you guys have been the best support and motivation therefore i can't thank you enough. so please, pat yourselves on the back. x

      I know I say this pretty much every update, but today was DEFINITELY the most difficult stretch yet. From the moment we left the B&B in Blisland to the bitter end, sleet, wind and fog engulfed us curtain after curtain. Didn't love being chased by a feral dog either. Although the first view of the sea was a stunner, mum and I were both soaked and caked in mud therefore the beauty of the scene was slightly..warped. Last leg tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Redruth--LANDS END
