Charity Bike Ride

screenshotOn Sunday 19th May, I shall be cycling a 50 mile route from Stoke-on-Trent to Market Drayton, on to Nantwich and back to Stoke. Having only done a small amount of training in the last few weeks I’m not sure I’m totally prepared but I fully intend to complete all 50 miles no matter how long it takes!

When I was younger I managed a 60 mile ride in Yorkshire and my legs felt like jelly afterwards – but at least I know I can do it.

As part of the charity ride event I wanted people to track my progress on the day so I created a page where you can do just that. The page currently just shows the route I will be taking but on the day it will show markers for where I am (I’ll update from my handle-bar mounted phone as I’m riding). I’ll also being using the hashtag #JDcharityride to tweet and post picture every now and then on the ride. Feel free to use the hashtag to tweet your encouragements :)

The charity I’m riding for is the Douglas Macmillan Hospice and have an initial target of £100 I’d like to raise, so any donations you could submit will be much appreciated!


Looking at the weather at the moment, it doesn’t look great but I’m at least hoping for some sunny spells to dry me out if it does rain.

Keep an eye on the charity ride page on Sunday around 10am (Not exactly sure what time it starts – I’ll update you soon)
