I know I've left setting this up at bit late but I still hope you can sponsor me!
This Friday 1st of May I will be beginning a 3 day coast to coast bike ride from Whitehaven to Tynemouth.The C2C starts in the former coal mining and industrial lands of West Cumbria, travels through the stunning scenery of the northern Lake District and heads into Keswick before passing through Penrith and the Eden Valley with its lush valleys and sandstone villages. It then starts the climb up to Hartside and onto the unspoilt Northern Pennines - the roof of England. There then follows an undulating ride as the C2C meanders through old lead mining villages, such as Nenthead and Rookhope, and down into the Durham Dales before entering the old steel town of Consett. From here it's an easy ride through one of Britain's old industrial heartlands to the North Sea and Tynemouth. The route is around 147 miles in all.
I have chosen to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association as my grandad Joseph Bowman suffered from the disease in his later years.
So far I have raised £115 with the sponsor forms and I'm hopeful that I can raise the rest online.
Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Motor Neurone Disease Association gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.
Thank you for your support.
