We completed our second 80km challenge, the London Bikeathon, on Sunday 31 August! And what an spectacular ride it was. The route took us past London's most amazing sites, all the way to Richmond Park and back. On the day, some 3000 cyclist set out on one of the three routes, in the charity's red kit, and, like us, everyone was affected by blood cancer - family members, friends, patients and survivors, all cycled to raise money and awareness for blood cancer. It was an inspiring, encouraging and very, very emotional experience. Even the weather played its part.

Our final (and toughest) challenge is yet to come. In less than a week, we will be cycling 150km around the Lake of Constance. This is going to take us a minimum of six hours, better not ask about the state of our bottoms... For those who still wish to contribute to our cause, now is your moment! Help us get our total up to £2500 - it would be a fantastic motivation to cycle those long hours.
A huge thank you everyone who came to cheer us on, donated money and sent messages of support. We cycled each mile with you in mind.
