Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - We raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

Late last year, after my sister had undergone surgery & radiotherapy for her illness, she asked me if I would do a sponsored "cycle ride" with her from London to Paris - "Yes of course"  (how hard could this be - I do a bit of spinning & cycle now & again)

Since that time ......

 Sue my wife volunteered ( she didn't want to miss the cold stella on the Champs Elysee on the last day). At this stage... neither of us realised it was 4 days cycling of 90/90/90/60 miles ! (make that grandes stellas?)

 - Sue and Jackie have bought  "go-faster" bikes and there has been some interesting discussions about the relative merits of gel pads & "butt-cream" v's vaseline.

- Queens College are holding fund-raising events, East Quay Medical Centre are doing like-wise

So there is no going back now - despite recieving the frightening training programme & looking at the hill profiles on the route map - aren't coastal areas supposed to be flat?

 So as the winter gets colder & training opportunities become frosty ones, and we try to work out how to keep hands & feet from going white after rides we need spurring on so - please sponsor us 

ALL YOUR MONEY WILL GO TO CHARITY AS WE ARE FUNDING THE TRIP OURSELVES - PLEASE DONATE

Thanks Jon & Sue
