    Story

    We've ALL seen the horrendous footage of the terrible bushfires in Australia over the hot season. It was a difficult time for both humans and wildlife. People died, many more lost their homes and entire families lost all their possessions. Huge areas of natural woodlands were destroyed. But it was the cataclysmic effect on the wildlife that got to me the most, with reports of nearly a billion animals wiped out, some species now which are on the verge of extinction.

    So I vowed to raise as much money as I could and as I used to be fairly nifty cyclist, and I live in the United Kingdom, I signed up for a Land's End to John O'Groats cycle ride. That's 1,000 miles from Land's End, the southernmost tip of England, to John O'Groats, the most northerly point of Scotland.

    I will be cycling with an organised group, Peak Tours, and we'll be cycling 1,000 miles in TEN days. That's 100 miles per day on average.

    I probably cycled 100 miles in the last year, so I have A LOT of training to do.

    But I will get there.

    And I consider myself lucky to be able to do the cycle ride. To have the time and the energy to cycle through 1,000 miles of all the stunning natural beauty that England and Scotland has to offer.

      Hey guys! Thanks for all the sponsorship to date at what is a very challenging time for everyone. The lockdown in the UK, and Scotland in particular, still forbids me from doing my 1,000 mile bike ride. So , I have postponed until the start of August. The good news is that this gives everyone time to sponsor me and perhaps I can get closer to my target figure. It's all for a good cause at the end of the day! All the best and stay safe! Robin x

      A quick update on my epic bike ride for the bush fire animals... The GOOD NEWS is that despite the virus pandemic almost scuppering my plans, the ride will still be going ahead, albeit in a slightly curtailed geographical manner, with my 1,000 miles in 10 days still taking place but in the Scottish Highlands (where I live) instead of the length of the UK. The ride starts on June 10th! You can still donate and all funds received will go to help the koala bears and kangaroos in Australia. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/myepicbikeride

      The Covid-19 pandemic has changed all our lives in the last weeks and thrown many of our plans into disarray. And so it has with my planned 1,000 mile bike ride in May. Group events are not possible now because of the Coronavirus outbreak. Instead, I am going to cycle 1,000 miles through my homeland of the Highlands, through some of the most remote and beautiful countryside in the United Kingdom. My target has been reduced to a more achievable 5 000 British pounds. Please dig deep and help motivate me to complete my solo ride 1000 miles!

    I live on the West Coast of Scotland and my passions are writing, helping people become financially independent, riding my bike and the great outdoors. I was very affected by the terrible fires in Australia so decided to do an epic 1,000 mile ride for WWF-Australia in May 2020.
