I have been a keen cyclist for a few years now and normally cycle with a large group of friends on a Wednesday evening. This is a great way to socialize while keeping fit and healthy. A couple of months ago there was a new comer to the group called Dave who mentioned he was doing a charity bikeathon. I thought this sounds like a great idea after all the miles we have covered maybe we should enter and see if we can raise some money for a good cause. This has inspired me to hopefully enter the London to Paris charity ride should my fund raising campaign be successful, a few friends have already mentioned that this is not a challenge for me as I've ridden 100 mile before but the challenge ahead is not the miles but to raise some funds for this charity.
