My story

[p]BICYCLE RIDE FROM ZARAGOZA to GIBRALTAR 11 SEPT - 31 OCT 2019[/p][p]I am 70 on the 3rd Sept, so I thought I would register reaching such an ancient age by cycling from Zaragoza (220 miles north of Madrid) to Gibraltar. Slightly, mad I know but I have always loved cycling. I set off on Wednesday 11 Sept from London St. Pancras on to Gare du Nord. Then from Gare du Lyon on to Barcelona Sants and finally on to Zaragoza. Hoping to reach Gibraltar sometime mid to third week in October! [/p][p][br][/p][p]After the excitement of the planning of my bicycle trip I had the brainwave of making this a charity ‘EVENT’ that would benefit some good causes! The first charity I have chosen is [b]LYMPHOMA ACTION + LYMPHOMA RESEARCH TRUST [/b]ostensibly because my own sister Thea Glover endured several years of awful treatments after she had contracted Non-Hodgkin’s cancer, thankfully Thea is now in remission. There is no doubt without expert oncology Lymphoma specialists at the various hospitals she attended the outcome might have been very different. I have seen through my own family how devastating the effects of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Therefore, I am very pleased to try and raise funds and awareness by fundraising to contribute towards scientific research that will one day lead to eradicate this ghastly disease.[/p][p][br][/p]
