Many thanks to everyone that has sponsored me so far, just been out for a practice (8 miles). Oh my days - this cycle ride is so going to hurt. My left knee (which incidentally is my good one) is red hot and very sore. Let's not discuss other areas of my body!! Anyway, Laura I promise I will do my best even if it means, I cycle one footed (now there's a stunt). For those that laugh, please take pity on me. In less than 2 weeks, I may be walking like John Wayne.....
