My story

[p]This year I have decided to push myself to the very limit of physical and physiological endurance and volunteer to put myself through a bike ride like no other, All in the name of charity.[/p][p]On the 20th July I will be embarking on a 24-hour mission in Richmond Park, London. [/p][p][b]The Mission[/b] - To ride 311 Miles in 24 Hours. [/p][p][b]The Aim[/b] - To raise £500. [/p][p][b]For Whom[/b] - [url=http://www.streetinvest.org/]Street Invest [/url][/p][p][b]When am I subjecting myself to this torture?[/b] - 20th July 2019[/p][p][i]"StreetInvest is an International Development NGO which was founded in the UK in 2008. We now host the [/i][url=https://www.streetinvest.org/network][i]Global Alliance for Street Work[/i][/url][i], a network of organisations who share Stratevest’s vision of putting a trustworthy adult into the life of every street-connected child.[/i][/p][p][i]Together we are helping street-connected children to grow and develop so that they can reach their potential and reduce the abuse and discrimination that they suffer.[/i][/p][p][i]We promote and support a distinct form of youth work called [/i][url=http://dev-wfm-si.pantheonsite.io/street-work][i]street work[/i][/url][i], which can be the first step to positive change in a young person’s life. Street Invest owe much of who we are to our Co-Founder Father Patrick Shanahan. You can read more about his extraordinary contribution to street-connected children’s lives [/i][url=http://dev-wfm-si.pantheonsite.io/people/patrick-shanahan][i]here[/i][/url][i]."[/i][/p][p]Why? [/p][p]Good question....[/p][p]This year I have signed up to do the Ride 100 in London to raise money for Street Invest a very worthy charity, who I met and learned about through my local bike shop - [url=https://www.richmondcycles.co.uk/]Richmond Cycles[/url]. I decided that riding 100 miles just wasn't enough for me and I wanted to test myself further and see how much money I could raise. [/p][p]Along with Richard at Richmond Cycles we devised a plan to ride from Richmond, North Yorkshire to Richmond, London in three days. This would surely raise some eyebrows and get people to put their hand in their pocket. [/p][p]Unfortunately, due to work commitments I am now unable to complete that ride.Instead I will be riding the same number of miles, around Richmond Park..in 24 hours. [/p][p]Not convinced? Neither am I. [/p][p]It is not going to be easy, in fact it will test me to my very limit, so please donate what you can. Every little helps.
