My story

[p]UPDATE - Hi! I DID IT! I cycled 971miles (and climbed 44,000ft of hills!) from Lands End to John O’Groats in 17.5 days over the Easter holidays (On the way home, I did more cycling to make sure I had cycled over 1000miles in total!).[/p][p]It was the most amazing thing I have ever done! Highs were spending so much time with my dad - we did lots of chatting, the beautiful landscape of the UK and all the animals I kept stopping to stroke en route. Lows were the many hills in Devon and North Scotland and the gale force winds on days 17 and 18. [/p][p]Thank you so much to everyone who has sponsored me so far. My two charities are going to benefit so much from the money you have donated.[/p][p]My legs did keep spinning and my bottom didn’t hurt at all! Please read my blog to see how the journey went (link below).[/p][p]***********************************************************************************************[/p][p]Hello, I'm Hannah and I'm 12 years old. I love cycling, particularly touring and long-distance cycling, and for a few years now I've been asking mum and dad if I can cycle Lands End to John O'Groats (LEJOG)! It's now happening and I'm busy practising my hill climbs and getting used to long days in the saddle. When I was 6 I raised over £2000 for charity by riding 109 miles in 3 days from my home in Bristol to my grandparents house on the other side of Reading. This is my next big challenge... and it really is a BIG challenge - approximately 1000 miles! My aim is to finish the ride in 21 days, taking a less direct route by avoiding some of the main roads and travelling on safer roads. I will be cycling with my dad, Adrian. We will cycle unsupported through the West Country and for the rest of the journey, mum will be the support driver in a camper van![/p][p]I have decided to raise money for two charities and split any money raised equally between the two. The first is linked to my school, Redmaids' High. In 2011 the school funded the building of Jong School in north east Cambodia through the charity United World Schools (UWS) and each year support students in the rural communities to attend the school. Mum is going to visit in the Summer so will be able to see where the money I raise has been spent. I will also have the opportunity to visit the school when I am in the Sixth Form. I chose my second charity because my other passion is music. I want to provide music therapy for children whilst they are in hospital. The Grand Appeal can do this for me and as a result of any money I raise will be able to send music therapists into the Bristol Children's hospital to provide music activities for very ill children.[/p][p]If you feel able to donate, I promise I will be determined every step of the way to reach the very top of Scotland, however much my legs and bottom hurt![/p][p]Please follow me on twitter @12_lejog[/p][p]I’m writing a blog when I can, please have a read if you are interested in the journey![/p][p][url=https://hannah12cycleslejog.blogspot.com/?m=1]https://hannah12cycleslejog.blogspot.com/?m=1[/url][/p][p]Many thanks[/p][p]Hannah[/p]

Brilliant job, Hannah - a bit further to cycle than to your violin lesson!! Well done indeed, and for such good causes.
