Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Just under a year ago 2 good friends of ours lost their son to a brain tumour, he was at the tender age of 19 and a great credit to his parents (most of the time)! So in memory of Alex Robinson I decided to involve my love of cycling (which involves spending time with the 4th & 5th most important ladies in my life, Jennifer the Mountain Bike and Clarissa the Road Bike) by doing a few sponsored rides to raise some money for Brain Tumour UK who helped him and his parents through a very difficult time.

Its 5 rides in total (in the region of 330 miles, depending on routes on the day) on every Sunday in July, these are:

Sunday 3rd: London to Oxford. Sunday 10th: London to Hove. Sunday 17th: London to Southend. Sunday 24th: London to Cambridge. Sunday 31st: Oxford to Cambridge.

My wife is chauffering me around, there to cheer me on over the finishing lines and most importantly of all, soothing my sore bits after every ride which I can't thank her enough for and hopefully I'll help raise a few £1's for charity too. So all I ask is for you to dig deep and donate as little or as much as you can as it all helps!

And if you're interested you can get regular updates on how its all going by visiting Bo's 5 rides in July for Brain Tumour UK on Facebook, just search for it and click the 'Like' button!

Thanks once again for all your donations, it makes what I'm doing even more worth while
