My story

[p]The Wharfedale Ton charity ride has raised over £43,500 for Marie Curie since its inception in 2016. The 100 mile route across fabulous and iconic Yorkshire countryside has made it a staple of the summer. This year however, the event has been spoiled by the virus, like so many others. All being well, it will take place in September assuming rules are relaxed sufficiently. However in the meantime our chosen charity, like so many others, is struggling for ways to raise funds. [/p][p]Therefore we are having 50 mile ride which can be done any way you like - either in real life or as a virtual 50 mile ride using Zwift, or any other virtual cycling app. [/p][p]This will happen on the day the event proper would have taken place - Friday 12 June from 7.45am. We would ask that you make a minimum donation through this page of £10.[/p][p]However the really clever bit: to support the event you don't need a bike, smart trainer, Zwift account or any of that fancy schmancy stuff - you can simply donate here as much as you like! So please help us continue this great fundraising story! [The downside is that unlike on the real event, to enjoy one of David Lishman's excellent pies after 25 miles, you will need to buy your own the day before from Lishmans of Ilkley - but hey, it is well worth a visit!][/p]

Thanks to everyone who took part and donated. Thankfully in this weather it was indoors. I don’t think 100 miles in this torrential rain would have been much fun.
