    Story

    I am joining with 12 other cyclists and will be cycling around 450 miles from London to Le Mans, from Saturday 17th to Wednesday 21st September.

    Barnet Community Projects is working with the local community on the Dollis Valley Estate. One of the main issues we are facing is that there is high unemployment in the area. To help tackle this we are growing our Job Club and looking to continue the IT course we are running with Barnet College.

    People coming to the centre and looking for work often need access to laptops and help with how to use them. Most job searches are online nowadays and applications also need to be done online. We have run a successful job club over the years and will be developing it further from September. We have raised the money needed to staff the Job Club and run it from the Rainbow centre.

    So we just need laptops to be able to run these courses and sessions for people. We have 3 already and I hope to be able to raise enough to buy 4 more. The IT course is well subscribed and we often have 8 or more people in attendance.

      Cycled to Mont St Michel today then up into the hills. Going well with folks in good heart. We have had some breakdowns and rainy weather, but have pushed through. Last day tomorrow doing 65 miles to Le Mans. Visited war memorial near Caen, we were all touched by the young lives lost.

      All packed and ready to roll. I cycled through a thunderstorm to Watford this morning for a training course – Flooding, Pouring Rain, Lightening! Took me all day to dry out. I am pleased the weather looks better for tomorrow, when we will be cycling 88miles. Thank you to Achanda for all her support and patience helping me prepare for the ride. Thank you for everyone at the Rainbow for their encouragement and covering for me. And thank you to you for your support and encouraging words. I will try to post daily updates – technology permitting

      Only 5 days to go before we leave. Some last minute tinkering with the bikes to get them running smoothly . We will be leaving North London on Saturday, 8am and heading to Portsmouth for the overnight ferry. There are 12 of us cycling and 2 people driving the support van – they will be looking after us and keeping us fed. We really appreciate the encouraging help they provide whatever obstacles we face.
