My 52 Mile Cycling Challenge
This is a special charity close to our hearts, as in 2010 whilst on holiday in Spain with his wife and young daughters, our eldest son Jamie was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma, after major surgery (in Spain) and several months of chemotherapy (UK) I'm delighted to say he made a full recovery, and last year the LOC gave him the all clear!
Earlier in the year I proudly completed a 27mile Manchester fundraiser. I hope to complete this 50 mile challenge in a respectable time, (under 4 hours) For my training I try to get out at least a couple of days a week, averaging 20-30 miles each time, I will now have to up my training regime, I have not ridden more than 35 miles in one ride before, and 50 miles is a big challenge for an ageing road biker like me!
I promise I shall not be asking again soon, but I would be really grateful if you could contribute what you are able to this worthy cause and distribute to anyone else that may be able to help.
