The Tandem Tart Challenge
2019. A new season is underway and there are some exciting plans in the pipeline. Firstly, I will be celebrating my 50th Partner with none other than former World and Paralympic Cycling Champion, Darren Kenny OBE. Then on 18th and 19th May, my cycling Club Sotonia CC will be hosting the Tandem Tart Challenge Weekend. A weekend of fun for tandems and solo riders starting with a time trial on Saturday afternoon followed by an evening of entertainment. Then to finish off the weekend, there will be a reliability ride covering three distances across the beautiful New Forest. All profits from this weekend will be donated to The Ramsay Research Fund. In October we may be seeing something quite unusal as far as time trialling is concerned but until approval is received, I am keeping this one under my hat.
My fundraising campaign has been up and running for nearly three years now and what fun, laughs and scary moments we have had. With the £9,000 mark reached and passed at the end of last year, we are less that £3000 from my target thanks to your generosity. All your donations are being used for research purposes only.
I achieved many things last year but my ultimate goal is to ride a 12 hour time trial on the tandem again. That is what I am aspiring to achieve. A pretty big goal for some people but as a seasoned endurance cyclist, a challenge that I have met on many occasions in the past.
The difference now is that I am living with ME.
Please help me to raise £12,000 for the ME Associations Ramsay Research Fund so that one day we will find a cure. Thank you.
