Hello everyone

My name is Charlie Ward.  I'm an Aussie living in Hackney, London and I work for Squiz UK in the Zetland House Building in Shoreditch in the East End.

This July 2009 I'm cycling from Paris to London to help Big Issue raise funds.

The ride is 377 kms / 234 miles in total.

Day 1: London to Portsmouth
114kms (71 miles)

Day 2: Caen to Bernay
100 kms (63 miles)

Day 3: Bernay to the Eiffel Tower, Paris
163kms (100 miles)

The most I've ever ridden in one day was 60 miles, when I cycled to Brighton last year.

I need your help to raise 1300 pounds by May which will help the Big Issue help people affected by homelessness.

Much appreciated
