My story

[p]I know you know that I like to cycle, and have done some charity rides in the past - however that was 5 years ago, and I have decided that now is the time to put my passion for cycling to yet another good cause, over the weekend of 25th and 26th August.[/p][p]This time it's for HOME START ABERDEEN - a charity that provides support to the vulnerable young families in Aberdeen (you will be amazed at how many there are). I personally support one family with a young child on a weekly basis - just providing a listening ear and the benefit of my wisdom (oh dear!). And there are over a hundred volunteers doing exactly the same thing. [/p][p]http://www.homestartaberdeen.org.uk/[/p][p]The challenge is a 2 day cycle from Aberdeen to Elgin and back. Around 85 miles per day. Not that difficult if there was a week in between each ride - but there's not. After an exhausting first day I will have to get up early on day 2 and start the cycle home. Being Scotland this is hilly terrain - and I hate hill climbing on my bike! [/p][p]http://www.ride-the-north.co.uk/[/p][p]So please dig deep and help me raise much needed funds for this wonderful organisation. [/p][p]Thanks in advance, Karen xx[/p]
