Team story

<p>On Friday September the 3rd, along with 100 other riders I will be participating in a bike ride to raise money for the charities &lsquo;Hope and Play&rsquo; and also &lsquo;Action for Children&rsquo;. Over 3 days I will be cycling just over 182 miles, from Stanstead in London, to the centre of Amsterdam in Holland.&nbsp;<br /><br />To put the distance of how far we will be riding into perspective, it will be the equivalent to doing the London to Brighton bike ride, every day for just over three days.<br /><br />Here is how we will do it<br /><br />Day 1:&nbsp;<br />Stansted Mountfitchet to Harwich &ndash; about 110km (68 miles) though undulating Essex countryside. At 9.30am we will leave Stansted Mountfitchet where we will make our way to Harwich.<br /><br />Day 2:&nbsp;<br />Hook of Holland to Heemskerk &ndash; about 135km (83 miles) up the F1 cycle path on the Dutch coast. We will disembark the ferry at around 7.30 and straight onto the cycle path up the cost. Heading through the Kennemerduinen Nature Reserve we will make our way to Heemskerk.&nbsp;<br /><br />Day 3:&nbsp;<br />Heemskerk to central Amsterdam &ndash; about 50km (31miles) This will be the final stage of the ride and will take us nicely in to the centre of Amsterdam</p> <h3>About Hope and Play</h3> <p><span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: small;">At Hope and Play we believe it is every child&rsquo;s right to grow up in a safe and playful environment with hope for a happy future. Our projects are about creating opportunities for children who may not have these hopes. We have created seaside playspaces for children who have never seen the sea. We are building playgrounds in areas which have been battered by occupation and war. We have sent educational laptops to schools in refugee camps to help provide a richer education. We bring hope and play to children whose circumstances deny them both. We are focussing at the moment on the deprived children in blockaded and war-torn Gaza.</span></p>
