Team story

[p][b]Matt (AKA Stocko's) Story:[/b][/p][p]I’ve been spending the last 28 years of my life learning to ride a bike with sufficient competency to take the stabilizers off, I'm hoping to achieve this just in time to cycle 100 miles at the London Surrey Classic 2018! In all seriousness, we’re raising money for a fantastic charity – SPEAR – who do great work supporting the homeless community in South West London. So please, donate what you can and if you fancy a day out somewhere along the route on the 28th July then feel free to hole up in a pub on the route and cheer me past. Thanks, Matt/Stockotron[/p][p][b]Frankie's Story:[/b][/p][p]Cycling is a relatively new concept for me, having made it comfortably into my twenties without the ability to competently pilot a bike to the end of the road, let alone 100 miles. This has all changed thanks to the encouragement of Mark, and a trip to a small Indonesia island where the only mode of transport is bike based! I’ve been commuting to work by bike for about a year, but have never attempted group or distance cycling, which is why Ride London is going to be a biiiiig challenge for me![/p][p]My ride will support SPEAR, a very worthy London based charity who provide support for the homeless community. Their goal is to take individuals ‘From Homelessness to Independence’ which is achieved through a combination of accomodation, training and bespoke support. Having previously supported them via work events, and met with their clients, I’m very hopeful that I can meet the challenge and raise even more money for them.[/p][p][b]Bill's Story:[/b][/p][p]I’m Bill and I’ve been cycling to work for the last 2 years, but have never ventured much further. Having worked closely with Spear for the past year I’ve learnt about all the invaluable work they do in the community, and so this challenge couldn’t go towards a more worthy cause. Thanks for your kind donations! [/p][p][br][/p][p][b]SJP's Story:[/b][/p][p] So I thought I was signing up to a 100 km bike ride and turns out it’s 100 miles…… I am well and truly out of my depth, I don’t own a road bike, completed London to Brighton (half the distance…) in the same amount of time as I am supposed to complete this one and I don’t like the look of padded lycra shorts. Luckily, I like a challenge. [/p][p]We will be riding for SPEAR – a really fantastic charity supporting the homeless. If you could donate anything at all, it would make a huge different to their clients. Wish us luck! Anyone who wishes to join us for some of our training rides is very welcome![/p][p][b]Mark's Story[/b][/p][p]I'm a relatively keen cyclist but cycling is not very keen on me. I have never tackled anything of this distance before! I'm also attempting the Etape du Tour this year, so if I complete both it will a minor miracle. I'm delighted to be riding with a great bunch and for a great cause in SPEAR[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
