If you’ve read the previous post you will know that we are preparing to to take part in the Ride To The Sun, a 100 mile ride starting in Carlisle on June 22nd and ending in Edinburgh on June 23rd.This will present us with a number of new challeges. Cycling 100 miles is something we’ve done before but this time the terrain is different. After 43 miles we will arrive at Moffat and then, “there is a 7 mile climb straight out of Moffat up the Devil’s Beef Tub“. Yes, a 7 mile climb in the dark!
That isn’t the ‘hard part’ referred to in the title and that isn’t the biggest challenge.
We’re doing the ride to raise money for Daft As A Brush Cancer Patient Care. It’s a great charity and we’re fully committed to supporting the work that they do. One of our riders is a volunteer driver with the charity and another has made use of the service they provide. The hard part will be getting sponsors and collecting money.
We have set up a page at Virgin Money Giving where our supporters and followers can make a donation. If you can help us please click on the link.
Thanks in anticipation.
