Mike's Investec Ashes 2013 Cycle Challenge

I hope all is well and you’re looking forward to the upcoming Ashes summer!

I’ve had my arm twisted to take part in the Investec Ashes 2013 Cycle Challenge to raise money for The Lord’s Taverners charity.

The challenge involves cycling 340 miles between all five Ashes Test grounds, starting in Durham on 13 July and finishing at Lord’s on 17 July, via Old Trafford, Trent Bridge and The Oval. Full details of the route are on the event website, www.investecwin.co.uk/cycle

It would be fantastic if you could support my fundraising efforts. Cycling 340 miles is going to be tough but it will be worth all the blood, sweat and tears to put more Lord’s Taverners accessible minibuses on the road for special schools in the UK.

Please donate whatever you can – your support will make a huge difference. Thank you!
