So, I've decided to join 20,000 other cyclists for a 100 mile cycle challenge that takes in the sights of London and the Surrey hills. I'm not a seasoned club cyclist but I've done a bit in my youth (turned 40 this year) and I'm planning to put in lots of training before August to cope with the leg-busting climbs!
I'm raising money for the RNIB because having worked with them I know what a great bunch they are. The charity provides vital support to people as they’re diagnosed with sight loss. One of the most important things they do is talk to people – go through all the available options, and reassure them during what can be a distressing time.
To make sure it's easier for people to get out and about they help with practical things, like visual aids or mobility training too. This help and support enables people to keep control of their lives and develop independence despite their sight issues. It really is a fantastic charity and one that deserves our support.
Any amount you can give will be really appreciated, and lets face it, I will be in lycra so that's got to be worth something!
