It is May 3rd and I am putting the finishing touches to my ‘Around the UK Virtual Cycle Challenge’
I have been trying to think of a serious challenge that I could take on to raise funds for New Dawn India without leaving my home.
I considered cycling the equivalent distance to Madurai……. Too far!
The charity is fortunate to have sponsors across the UK and that gave me the idea to ‘visit’ each postcode where we have a sponsor.
Now, because I am doing this challenge on an exercise bike, I have been able to shave off a fair few miles by travelling ‘as the crow flies. I am still left with plenty.
June seemed as good a month as any plus there will be the Euros and some test match cricket for me to watch while the miles go by.
I will have the bike positioned in the lounge so if you are walking past you will be able to see me in action. For those of you further afield we are working on a webcam so you can check on my progress.
We will update you each day with my progress and are hoping that some of the sponsors and supporters might want to meet up and maybe record a short message for your sponsored child or the team in Madurai.
The children know that I am going to be doing this challenge so I cant let them down.
Our target is to raise £1453 – £1 per mile!
If you would like to support New Dawn then please visit my Just Giving Page or contribute in your usual way (but please mark your gift ‘cycle’)
More details of my route will follow.
