Cycling for Dad: The training so far
In August, Chris Ryland is cycling 1100 miles from Graz, Austria to Melbury Osmond in Dorset, England to mark the ten-year anniversary since his dad died from leukemia. Chris' cycling challenge will take him from his father's birth place to the place he was laid to rest. So far, he's raised over £1100.
Training for my 1100 mile ride is going well. In the 6 months since I started riding I've now completed over 1100 training miles with the distance, intensity and frequency of rides increasing every week. I've got a plan together to complete a minimum of 2500 more over the next 15 weeks, hopefully 3000 more before I leave for Austria. Hopefully that will get me ready for 1100 in 14 days!
Some fund raising events are being planned such as cake sales, bingo night, prize draw, car boot sales etc so that should raise some money! I have to get to that £5k target.
If anyone knows of a 5-berth motorhome that isn't being used in August please let me know, I need one for the trip and haven't got one yet! One way or another I'll sort it though.
