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 www.charitygiving.co.uk/nickkeeley
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.
