Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

About 10 years ago, John & I decided to do a charity bike ride. We chose to do the BHF 40 miles Humber Bridge ride.  Training?  A couple of laps of Bedfont lake (so about 4 miles max) a couple of times in the 3 weeks before.  Sore, happy & elated by our achievement afterwards.  
A couple of years later my Dad had a heart attack & BHF have supported him immensely since then.
 
Other than that mad 40 miles 10 years ago, I've only been cycling for a year, clocking up 2 or 3 20-30 mile rides a week.  
 
It's my 40th birthday on 6 August this year, so a landmark year for me & I intend to do something amazing.  
WILL cycle my first century before I turn 40.  
Something amazing for a pretty ordinary, 5' 3" mother of 3 under 7's.
It will be great to do something amazing for the benefit of a lot of other people too.
