Team story

[p]I am undertaking my hardest challenge yet as I attempt to ride over 300 miles (500km) in 24 hours as part of the Crudwell 'Le Mans' 24 Hour bike ride - which is a community fundraising event where teams of all ages and ability compete to raise the most sponsorship. [/p][p]This will be both a physical and mental challenge - to meet the target I will need to complete 2 laps per hour, every hour, of the 7 mile circuit whilst also finding some time to eat.[/p][p]Having never ridden further than 200 miles this will be an epic adventure all in aid of raising money for Friends of Crudwell school and the Crudwell village hall and it’s surrounds[/p][p]Clearly I am looking to raise a significant amount which will be matched by my employer, Gigamon. Any donation will be much appreciated [/p][p]The challenge is being made possible thanks to support from Declan Flood PT, BPF Fitness Hub in Tetbury and Independent Bikeworks in Cirencester [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
