Thanks for taking time to visit my JustGiving page.  On September 21, I will be heading off with 24 colleagues from around the Smiths News Group, to cycle 200 miles from one of our French depots in Paris to our Group head office in Swindon.


My personal challenge is to raise £1,500, cycle 200 miles (and rising by latest calculations!) and return home in one piece...


I am raising funds for the Oxford John Ratcliffe hospital neo-natal unit and the breastfeeding support clinic.


Your support would be gratefully received by me, the charity and many mums and sick babies.


The itinerary:

Friday 20 September. Travel from London to Paris


Saturday 21 September.  1st day of the bike ride. 65 miles from Paris to Louviers following the River Seine.


Sunday 22 September. Day 2 and not looking forward to a sore bum!  70 Miles from Louviers to Le Havre.  Ferry to Portsmouth


Monday 23 September.  3rd and final day. 75 miles from Portsmouth to our Head Office in Swindon.  Phew!


Wish me luck!
