My story

[p][span=font-size: 13px; line-height: 15px;]Hello and thank you for visiting my page. My cycling challenge for this summer was to cycle across the whole of Ireland in one day which I was very pleased to complete on the 19th July! The epic one day cycle was 235 km long (145 miles) from Dublin to Galway. Special thanks go to my husband John for all the organisation of the route and for leading into the relentless head wind which batter us all day.[/span][/p][lt]pre[gt][span=font-size: 13px; line-height: 15px;]Some of my statistics from the ride are as follows:[/span][lt]/pre[gt][ul][li][span=font-size: 13px; line-height: 15px;]10 hours and 16 minutes in the saddle[/span][/li][li][span=font-size: 13px; line-height: 15px;]1,184 meters of climbing[/span][/li][li][span=font-size: 13px; line-height: 15px;]3,3134 calories burned[/span][/li][li][span=font-size: 13px; line-height: 15px;]51,744 rotations of the pedals[/span][/li][/ul][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 13px; line-height: 15px;"[gt]Raising money for Vision Care for Homeless People will give me an added incentive to get through the many kms. VCHP carries out nearly 1,400 eye examinations a year through 6 clinics, three in London and one in Birmingham, Brighton and Manchester. VCHP ultimate aim is to expand the service nationwide in all the major cities, so as to make a difference to as many homeless and vulnerable people as they can. We are actively working towards that.[/p] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 13px; line-height: 15px;"[gt]I covered all my own expenses so EVERY penny you give will go directly to delivering the VCHP services. [/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 13px; line-height: 15px;"[gt]I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 13px; line-height: 15px;"[gt]Elaine x[/p]
