Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Between the 7th and 9th of June I'm going to be cycling from Chiswick via Alexandra Palace in London to Castle Donington in Derbyshire,  joining a cast of musicians, industry types, metal fans and mates to raise money for Nordoff Robbins, Teenage Cancer Trust, and NSPCC's Childline.

Those that know me and follow me on Facebook will recognise that I'm fond of a tune, swinging a leg over a bike for a good cause and assaulting any hill that comes my way. But there are not many causes more important than the welfare of our children.

This will be the third year I've done the ride and hoping for the same fine weather, unlike some of the conditions we've been training in during recent months! 

But should cold and rain prevail any such hardship pales into insignificance when you meet teenage cancer survivors and realise that Teenage Cancer Trust can only afford to support half of the people that need it.  When they do the difference they make is incredible. 

I'll be doing this just shy of 59th birthday so I'll also be donating my birthday present equivalent in cash and I think the causes are worth a few of your hard-earned pounds too.

So please give anything you can afford and I'll do the blood, sweat, tears and potential road rash thing in exchange.  I even promise to record the journey using a clever wireless telephone and mount the pictures on the interweb.  

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.

To make it even easier you can even use your mobile phone - Text HMTS55 £10 to 70070 to donate a tenner for my efforts!. 

Thanks in anticipation!
