My story

[p]This summer (with some friends) I'm cycling up Mt Ventoux 3 times in 1 day, hopefully joining the Club des Cingles du Mont-Ventoux (the crazy club of the windy mountain). So far there are 12,177 people who have formally completed this challenge which covers 137km and 4400m of climbing. Did anyone mention it was windy as well?[/p][p]I have seen some of the great work that Great Ormand Street Hospital has done over the years and truly believe in giving some support to this organisation which helps so many young people and their families through tough periods. After the success of Cascaid last year it is fantastic to see the momentum continue and another wonderful charity chosen for this years campaign.[/p][p]I have never used a sporting goal as a way to raise money for charity before but feel this is a big enough challenge to do so. Training has been sporadic and considerably less hilly than it needs to be. I in no way guarantee success (you must respect the mountain) but it has been a good way to force me back on my bike following my own accident and I am certainly giving it my best shot - aided by a somewhat embarrassing 34*30 combo on my beautiful Firefly bike.[/p][p]I hope some of you can find a way to support my efforts even though I've left it late to set up this page.[/p]

What an amazing thing to do - as a fan of the Tour de France, I'm used to seeing how hard it is for the professionals. Just awe-inspiring that you have achieved this. Well done.
