Life Cycle fund raising

In a few weeks time I will take part in my fifth ride with the University of Nottingham LifeCycle team. It will be Professor David Greenaway’s last ride before he retires as Vice Chancellor.

My tally so far for LifeCycles is 764.5 miles in 59 hours and 5 minutes – climbing 28,114 ft (Everest is 29,000 ft!). This was achieved in two Coast to Coast rides, two days in (flat) Norfolk and a Lochs and Glens ride two years ago. The latter ride I’m repeating at the end of the month.

The ride is expected to be around 220 miles – starting in Inverness and finishing in Glasgow. I’m grateful to my friends pointing out that it looks to be downhill on a globe! It was around 10,500 ft of climbing last time. The ride is done over two and a half days – and is punctuated by Distillery stops! It’s a shame I don’t drink Whiskey …

It looks like I won’t quite clock up 1,000 miles – although I did do a 50 mile training ride with the team – so perhaps this does take the count to £1,000 miles!

The cause this year is for  Children’s Brain Tumour research. Although I’m over my fund raising target I’d still like to raise some more money – so if you feel inclined, I would be really grateful! The link to my JustGiving page is here.

I need to get back to some training!
