Nick’s Bike Ride – To Liverpool And Back

When I volunteered to cycle about 500 miles to Liverpool and back to support Fleet Pond Society’s Clearwater Campaign, the summer seemed a long way off. Now, after months of training, I only have a few days to go before I set off on Sunday, 4th July. A map of the intended route is given below.
So far I have raised a few hundred pounds in sponsorship from a small number of very generous donors.  As I will be riding alone and as the spell of fine weather seems to be coming to an end, there may be days when my spirit will flag.  If, however, when I get to my night’s stop, I find that more sponsorship money has come in during the day, this will give me quite a boost and set me up for the next day’s ride.
It is very easy to sponsor me on line, if you have not already done so, please go to
There will be a separate post at the top of this blog (updated daily) that records my progress, so log in on Sunday evening to see how I do on my first day, when I hope to go via Henley-on-Thames and over the Chilterns to Thame.
