My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to the RNLI. 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][p]I will be up-dating this page as my journey progresses, so keep checking. [/p][p]The target I've set of raising [b]a minimum of[/b][b] [/b][b]£8,000[/b][b] is loosely based on the estimated cycling distance of[/b][b] [/b][b]8,000miles.[/b] This might sound a bit ambitious but that's only £1 per mile![/p] [p][span=color: #ff0000;][b]The full circuit is largely a solo challenge but for anyone with a bike who is willing to join me for any part of the ride (local to you, or your favourite part of the British or Irish coast) your company would be very welcome.[/b][/span][/p] [p][b]Schedule[/b] – I aim to complete the first part of the challenge, i.e. All of the GB mainland (England, Scotland, Wales & some of the smaller islands) within one year but this is not a deadline. Ideally, from starting in the SW corner of Cornwall, I’ll follow a full clockwise rotation of the two main islands of Britain & Ireland. Smaller islands with RNLI Stations will be visited according to flight/ferry schedules, some of which have a limited seasonal service.[/p] [p][b]Distances[/b] – Total distance is approximately 8,000 road miles around the coast of all British & Irish Islands where Lifeboat Stations are to be found. Mileage will vary from 50 to 100 per day, depending upon terrain, weather, distance between lifeboat stations and other rest stops.[b][span=color: red;][lt]br /[gt][/span][/b][/p][lt]p style="margin-top: 10.0pt; margin-right: 0cm; margin-bottom: 10.0pt; margin-left: 0cm;"[gt][b][span=color: red;][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]Saturday 5 September[/span] : At last - I'm off!

So far, this week I've ticked off 16 RNLI stations, from Penlee to Portishead. I've already met many wonderful people. More details to follow.[lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=color: red;][b][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]Sat 10 October[/span][/b] : Much of the Welsh coast and another 19 Lifeboat stations reached. Details to follow, but already on Facebook page (search RNLI Coastal Cycle Ride)[lt]/span[gt][/p][p][span=color: red;][b][lt]span style="text-decoration: underline;"[gt]Thurs 22 October:[/span][/b] All of the west coast of England and all of Wales done! Reached the most north-westerly English lifeboat station at Silloth, at the top of the Solway Firth then to Carlisle. 22 days on the bike, 1,249 miles cycled, 57 Lifeboat stations visited.
