Team story

[p]Having rasied money for Christian Aid on the London to Paris ride in 2012 I saw the good that the charity did and vowed to raise more money for the charity and it's good causes. Along with cycling, snowsports is another passion of mine and following a pre-season instructors meeting where we were shown the good that DSUK is doing I decided to split the fundraising between these two worthwhile causes.[/p][p]I have gathered together a lean cycling team of Matt and Greg to complete one of cycling's best known routes, Lands End to John O'Groats. Rather than the usual 13 day trip we will be attempting to complete it in 9 days along with help from our support drivers Richard and Jimmy and the charities.[/p][p]Please help us reach our target of £5000 that will help people regardless of race or religion and help disabled people have the same joy and fun on the snow that able bodied people enjoy.[/p] [p][b]Why donate?
