My story

[p]OK so here goes; I've only gone and signed up for a charity bike ride. London to Guildford they said, how bad could that be? Then I read the small print; [i]'via France' [/i]so if I survive the training I will be off on 3rd May to take on 250 miles over 3 days passing through St. Malo and Caen on the way.[/p][p]I am doing this in support of [url=http://www.halowproject.org.uk]www.halowproject.org.uk[/url] a brilliant charity dedicated to getting fun and meaningful experience into the lives of young people growing up with learning difficulties.[/p][p]There are about 120 people taking part in the ride and everyone is covering their own costs so that the money we raise through sponsorship can all go straight to the Halow project. It is now 20 years since I last did something like this and asked for sponsorship (barring the odd moustache mishap) so I hope that you can help me to support this fundraising. Training started this morning (that's 1 Jan for those of you watching this on catch-up) and getting out of bed only 8 hours into 2019 felt like a challenge in itself.[/p][p]If you keep giving I promise to try to resist the temptation to post any pictures of me in lycra[/p][p]Happy New Year![/p][p]Jon[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
