My story

[p]At the Electrical Industries Charity PowerBall on 10th November 2017 I completed a small card pledging to raise £1,000 for the charity in 2018. Now I have to deliver! My hobby is long distance cycling. What is a long distance? Most of my rides are 125 miles and that takes me around 13 hours. I have always had an ambition to ride 250 miles on a continuous ride and I have my opportunity on 5th May, when I am due to set off from Chepstow in South Wales at 6.00 am and to ride across Wales to New Quay, a little town on the coast, then back to Chepstow, where I must arrive by 9.00 am the next day. So I will ride through the night and climb around 16,500 feet in total because Wales is not flat. Can you stop? Yes, there are compulsory stops every 50 miles or so, usually cafes. But you don't hang about because time is miles. Can I do it? I hope so but it will be touch and go because I am not fast but I will plod along and do my best. Thank you so much for your support for an excellent charity which does tremendous work for people in our industry who need a helping hand.[/p]
