Team story

[p]On Sep 21[sup]st[/sup] we will start our epic cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats (the length of the UK). Normally this iconic trip takes 12-14days, but we’ve decided to compress this into 8days, whilst also staying off major roads, making it a real physical and mental test. Each day we’ll average some 8-10hrs in the saddle, covering 200km and 2,000m ascents ... and 6000+ calories .... that’s the equivalent of cycling from London to Birmingham and twice up England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike, each and every day. [/p][p]We’re doing this challenge to raise much needed funds for [b]The Lymphoma Association[/b] and [b]Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research[/b]. Each of us has immediate family or friends that are affected by blood cancers and these charities provide excellent and much needed support to patients, carers and families.  [/p][p]Our training over the coming weeks will require many hours of sacrifice and our families will be a great support. We’ve arranged that all the costs for the trip will be borne by ourselves, thus ensuring that [span=text-decoration: underline;]every penny you donate goes to the benefit of these well deserving charities[/span]. [/p][p]Please dig deep and support our challenge ... ... we are very grateful for any support you can offer.  You can follow our challenge at [url=http://www.facebook.com/2012lcc]www.facebook.com/2012lcc[/url].[/p][p]Many thanks in advance,[/p][p]Alan Critchley, Chris Midgley, Mark Wharton, Mark Harrison  [/p]
