Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I am so grateful to Cycling Projects (Pedal Away) for giving me the initial opportunity (and providing the resources) in late 2017, for me to take up cycling again after a forty year break. I know I share this gratitude with a lot of my Pedal Away cycling buddies all of whom have become very good friends over the past two and a half years and who also have a shared love of cycling.
However, the reason for this fundraising effort is to support Cycling Projects in their work in providing cycling opportunities through their Wheels for All programme and other cycling initiatives. Cycling Projects provide opportunities for all members of the community; they provide a wide range of cycles and activities that are fun and stimulating for adults and children with physical and learning disabilities. Cycling Projects is a registered charity and rely on donations for their work; hopefully, with your help, all monies raised through this fund raiser will, in a small way, help them in their work.
I will be cycling with 35 other cyclists on the Annual Rainhill Charity Bike Ride. We will be cycling coast to coast from Tynemouth to Ravenglass in some parts following the Hadrians Wall Cycleway; overnight stops have been planned in Hexham and Carlisle. Total mileage is approximate 160-180 miles over the three days dependent upon the route taken.
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. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
All donations appreciated however small. Thank you for your support.
