Cycle challenge - the Big 6
#1
Hi all

I'm not a big one for sponsor requests so please bear with me.  This year a very good friend of mine is doing something truly special and I've agreed to help him.  In 2008 John and his brother Pete lost their father to motor neurone disease.  For those that don't know this is the disease that Stephen Hawking has made famous.  It's the disease that has no cure.  Yet.

John, Pete and another friend have undertaken a huge fund raising drive for the Motor Neurone Disease Association and will undertake 2014 competitive sporting miles in the calendar year of 2014 with the aim of raising at least £30000.  Each event gives their friends an opportunity to get involved and that's where I come in

Between the 9th and 12th July we will be cycling between the six major cricket grounds in the UK.  Starting at The Oval in London, via Lords to Edgbaston, Birmingham then across to Trent Bridge, Nottingham before heading north to Headingley, Leeds and over to Old Trafford, Manchester.  In all we'll cover about 350 miles and plenty of hills

This may be a roadie ride, but in order to hit that total we need all the help we can get.  If you are able to sponsor us any amount it would be greatly appreciated.  The link below will take you to the justgiving page or if you want to sponsor me directly I can pass it on to the cause

Thanks for taking the time to read this

Nick

I'm happy to say we completed a very tough ride last night in a rainy Manchester.  346 miles and about 6km climbing over 4 days with enough injuries, fatigue and complications to make it a real experience - but a good one Smile  The pace was slow - but the motto was go fast go alone, go far go together

Thank you so much to those that have sponsored us for this event - your generosity has been greatly appreciated and your money is going to a truly worthy cause

For anyone that would still like to support the Motor Neurone Disease Association, or the challenge we have completed then please take a look at the link below Smile

Thanks

Nick
