Team story

[lt]h1 style="text-align: center;"[gt][span=text-decoration: underline;]Tom and Steve's Long Ride: London to Paris[/span][lt]/h1[gt][p][/p][p]We are attempting to do the equivalent of 10 marathons in 4 days. OK, so we are on bikes, but still. Dig deep and help us raise as much money as possible for our chosen charities, described below.[/p][p]We don't have flash road bikes, support teams or even other people with us. We just have our training that we have been doing during the HORRIBLE winter months and a spare inner tube. We have been rained, snowed and sleeted upon for hour after hour (see photo); we are yet to have a sunny ride!! Also, Steve has had a puncture nearly every time (again, see photos). Surely that's worth an extra few quid?[/p][p]All the money raised is being split between the charities 50:50, and none is being put towards our hotel/ferry/energy drink bills. [/p] [p][/p] [p]DAY 1: The Mall - Dover (75 miles)[/p] [p]DAY 2:  Ferry to Calais, then Calais - Arras (68 miles)[/p] [p]DAY 3: Arras to Compiègne (67 miles)[/p] [p]DAY 4: Compiègne to Paris (50 miles)[/p] [p]The Route is appoximately 260 miles, if we don't get lost (which we will). Its going to hurt. [/p] [p][/p] [lt]h2[gt][span=text-decoration: underline;]Tom's Choice: Uniting Friends[/span][lt]/h2[gt] [p]Uniting Friends is charity dedicated to social inclusion for adults with a learning disability living in the London borough of Redbridge and surrounding boroughs. Funding is always an uphill challenge (like our ride to Paris!) and being a small charity means that all donations really make a big difference.[/p] [p][/p] [lt]h2[gt][span=text-decoration: underline;]Steve's Choice: Crohn's and Colitis UK[/span][lt]/h2[gt] [p][span=color: #333333; font-family: 'lucida grande', tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 17px;]Crohn’s and Colitis UK help to raise awareness, fund research and support people who are affected by these conditions. It is a charity I have been a member of since I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease 18 months ago.[/span][/p] [p][/p] [p][/p] [lt]h1 style="text-align: center;"[gt]Thank you very much for looking at our page, and an even bigger thank you if you sponsor us![lt]/h1[gt] [p][/p] [lt]h1[gt]Love Tom and Steve[lt]/h1[gt][p][lt]img title="the rainiest day = misery" src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-QTg-XsDFc10/UXz4Gzrr1uI/AAAAAAAAAP4/3UC96sS7RSI/w413-h551/20120923_151002.jpg" alt="" width="413" height="551" /[gt][/p][p][/p][p][lt]img title="yet another puncture" src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-KGbwrHs_Y1g/UXz4Jp_ARmI/AAAAAAAAAPk/UsUb6C5Kou4/w735-h551/2013-02-23+14.25.09.jpg" alt="" width="450" height="337" /[gt][/p][p][/p][p][lt]img title="and another puncture" src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-pVcbZTubShA/UXz4PSe9IAI/AAAAAAAAAPs/55gJlWkkXQQ/w735-h551/2013-03-30+12.46.47.jpg" alt="" width="450" height="337" /[gt][/p][p][/p]
