£2186.67..... Speechless!

96% of my goal! Please rt and help donate for National Autistic Society at www.justgiving.com/markdixoncycling

On 6th Nov 2013 the police knocked on our door to break the shattering news that our son, Russell, had died whilst at University.

He was just starting on the next exciting chapter of his life and tragically it was taken away.

As a tribute to Russell, and also so he can laugh at my efforts, I am riding the Prudential Rise London/Surrey 100 bike ride for the National Autistic Society.

Russell had aspergers and in spite of this made many achievements in his life, I want to help NAS make a difference to others who are touched by autism.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Donations up to £1590.11, wow!. I rode a 60 mile sportive last weekend as a practice for the BIG ONE. It went well but I still need more long ride practice. I did, however, discover that jam dough nuts are perfect cycling fuel! I wonder if Greggs will sponsor me.

Donations are now up to £1430.11 and still 3 months to the big ride. I tried a big ride last Friday, 70 miles with the promise of beer at the end of it. Unfortunately I didn't account for the 70 mile ride home the next day. I was exhausted. Just show I need more practice!
