We are raising money for a brilliant Brighton-based homeless charity, the First Base Day Centre, www.bht.org.uk/services/first-base-day-centre/
I've started a blog if you want to read about the preparations and the actual trip: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/OrkneytoParis
Background:I suggested to Jim we could do the Brighton - Paris ride, which takes place on the longest day of the year, 20th June, about 130 miles; but, leaving on 1st June, we will preface it with a ride, from the 9 hole golf course on remote North Ronaldsay on Orkney, cycling through Scotland and England, playing golf at a variety of courses on the way, plus a few aikido classes I can teach too( I am also an aikido teacher). The whole trip will be about 1100 miles. We will be self-supporting on the ride but want you to support us and the charity by giving generously.
- We would love you to join us on the way for cycling, golf or aikido, or all three and put some money in the pot! Please get in touch.
