The Challenge Is On

So this is it then, three of us have finally decided to try and ride 920 miles in around 11 days for Great Ormond Street hospital. We will be starting on 4 July at Land's End and finishing hopefully on 14 July at John O'Groats.

We have been holding off the decision due to various injuries which have stopped us training but now believe we can make it. So the mad rush for accommodation, cycling gear and sponsors has begun.

Graham Jackson and Shane Taylor have just bought new seats and need to break these in and we are all upgrading our bikes to give us a fighting chance on the long hill climbs. Training in flat areas around Cambridge is not helping this preparation.

So wish us luck and help us meet our targets for this great cause.
