Its reached the fateful day. We leave Warwick this afternoon for an overnight flight to Nairobi and 411kms of cycling. Feeling more than a little apprehensive about a couple of the days – days two and four – which involve over 100 kms, which looks to be mostly upwards, and then 88kms with a big 25 km ascent in the afternoon. We’ve done some good mileage in training, but not enough hills I fear…..
But there’s no turning back – that’s why they call it a challenge! Thanks again to all out fantastic supporters who have helped us raise nearly £5000 already, and our major fund-raising events still have to take place. The photo here relates to one of those – a children’s charity cycle ride in Victoria Park, Leamington which is happening on the Sunday after we get back – 25th November from 10.30 am. Big thanks to Roger and hirecentres.com for sponsoring this event on our behalf and to Stephen, our Police community support officer (pictured here with some of our first participants) who has been a tremendous help with all the detailed arrangements. Come and support us if you’re in the area!
Until our return…….
