My story

[p]Hi,[lt]br /[gt] Following on from my previous Rugbytots’  bike rides from London to Paris in 2012 and the Rugby World Cup bike ride in 2015 I am now joining approx 35 other riders to cycle, what could be my most challenging ride, from Lands End to London over 4 days in August this year to raise money for the Wooden Spoon charity whose mission is:   To positively transform the lives of children and young people with a disability or facing disadvantage across the UK and Ireland through the power of rugby.[lt]br /[gt] [lt]br /[gt][/p] [p]I have started my training with some weekend rides and I recently completed a 50 mile ride from Cheltenham racecourse around the Cotswolds on Sunday 14[sup]th[/sup] May as part of my training and in so doing made a donation to the British Heart Foundation. I will be posting some photos of the journey.[/p] [p]Those of you who know me will see that I am a former front row forward and am approaching the wrong end of 40 and thought of so many hills fills me with worry. The only thing is to get out and ride through the pain barrier.[/p] [p]Thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
