A few years ago Rod Smallwood asked whether I had the guts to take on a ride through the desert for a good cause or three. It was the Truants Morocco ride to benefit Teenage Cancer Trust, Nordoff Robbins, and Childline. It gave me a cycling bug I just haven't been able to shake, and this January we'll be back at it to benefit  kids facing cancer, kids who need a lifeline, and kids who can benefit from music therapy, and believe me the results are breathtaking. 

This time we're hoping to bring the grand total of money earned over the years to over a million pounds, and we're asking for your help. The costs of my trip are covered with the generous support of my company TeamRock, so your donation will go straight to the charities who need it most. No amount is too small (or too large!) but if you've money to spare, I guarantee it'll be very gratefully received. Thanks very much!

Great achievement Alex! In honour of Lara Croft, you should have braided your hair in two. The little leather shorts and white vest would have been a nice touch as well. Next time eh?
