Team story

[lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt]I am raising funds to take 500 to 600 children in care or young carers to the seaside for a day to remember. The children live in east London - one of the poorest areas in Britain.[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt]To do this I am cycling the 76 miles from Waltham Forest to Southend-on-Sea - [b]and back[/b] on 22nd May 2016.[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt]I want you to do two things to help me.[/p][ol][li][span=font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;]I want you to donate £1 towards the cost[/span][/li][li][span=font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;]I want you to ask all your social media friends to donate £1 as well.[/span][/li][/ol][p][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt]On average we each have 150 social media friends. If 150 people donate £1 and persuade their 150 social media friends to donate £1 then we will reach our target of £21,000 with money to spare.[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt][/p][lt]h2[gt] [b]Joining instructions[/b][lt]br style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;" /[gt][lt]/h2[gt] [lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt]If you want to do this ride with me then this is how you do it: -[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt][span=line-height: 14.4px;]This ride is hard and long so should only be undertaken by experienced and fit cyclists who have done this kind of distance. If you want to train with us then search for the training rides on GoSkyRide by entering the post code E17 4JF on a Sunday at 10am.[/span][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt]The route is suitable for road, touring and hybrid bicycles and it is recommended that cyclists consider including a 'granny gear', as some of the hills are tough, especially as one starts to tire. Your bike should be properly maintained and you should bring two spare tubes, puncture outfit including tyre levers, a decent pump, plenty of liquids and appropriate food and, of course, clothing appropriate for the day.[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt][span=line-height: 14.4px;]Entry to the event is free but we would like participants to raise funds.[/span][/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt]We would very much welcome the participation of cycling club members, cycle clubs and those willing to act as guides on the day to ensure that everything passes well.[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt]Faster club cyclists can ride as a group, drafting each other. The rest of us should be aiming for an average of 12.5mph or thereabouts.[/p][lt]p style="margin: 0.833em 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 14.4px;"[gt][b][url=http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/charity-web/charity/displayEventDetails.action?eventId=24953&charityId=1011130&invocation=evt0050]You can join the ride and raise funds here.[/url][/b][/p]
