Team story

[p]Hi [/p][p]Thank you for visiting our page.[/p][p]We are a group of ladies from the Cherwell Valley, all over 40, who have courageously signed up to cycle 470km across rural Rajasthan, over 5 days, in aid of four charities very close to our hearts.  Leaving behind twelve husbands, one fiance, on boyf and two "works in progress", 34 children, 7 dogs, 11 cats, 8 chickens, 1 guinea pig, 3 tropical fish, 8 sticklebacks and a class of 22, 10 year olds.[/p][p]Some of us have cycled before, but many are back in the saddle for the first time in 25 years.  Training has commenced in earnest, lycra has been purchased, and bikes which until now have been perfectly fine, have been replaced with "dream machines".  We are each funding the cost of the trip ourselves but planning to put on numerous fun events throughout the year to raise both profile and funds for our chosen charities.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to our charities.  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.  We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
