Fundraising page is set up!

So it only took me about 3 months from signing up to finally getting our fundraising page up and running!  Let's see how long it will take me to let everyone know about our page...

Earlier this year, around March, I became the owner of my very first bike (a snazzy little hybrid). It only took about 30 years since learning to ride a bike to owning one (are we starting to see a theme here?)!  The next thing I know I've signed Stijn and myself up to the London to Paris ride!  I barely even know how to ride a bike properly what have I gotten myself into...

In a nutshell, since signing up, we have: been training every weekend, and sometimes after work, mostly around the hampstead hills; done a 50 mile training ride in Daventry; bought 2 new (used) road bikes; Stijn - completed a triathlon; been on a lovely scenic 60km ride in and around Welwyn; learned to use clippy shoes, which includes me falling off my bike at least 3 times; completed the Ride London - Surrey 100 miler, which was the third time I used my road bike and at about mile 70 I realised that I really need to get my bike fitted to me :-S

L2P is now just over 5 weeks away, and we need to pick up our training.  We will keep you posted on how that goes, watch this space...
