Story

I am currently riding 10 x Cent Cols Challenges: 1,000 cols. Two have now been completed. [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]I am fundraising for the [url=http://www.londonbmx.co.uk/]London BMX [/url]project which is part of [url=http://www.accesssport.org.uk/]Access Sport.[/url] This is a fantastic project, giving ‘no-future’ kids a new perspective on life through dedicated commitment to teaching kids sports skills through which they can discover self-esteem and a positive outlook on their future.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]You can follow me on [url=https://www.instagram.com/phildeeker/]Instagram here[/url] and on [url=https://www.facebook.com/centcolschallenge/?ref=bookmarks]Facebook here[/url].[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Every riding day I will be posting news (you can follow on Instagram without having an account: just go to [url=https://www.instagram.com/phildeeker/]my Instagram[/url].[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][b]Why Access Sport?[/b][lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]In 2016 this charity was granted the largest sum of money yet given to one single project by the [url=http://www.wwmt.org/]William Wates Memorial Trust[/url] for whom I worked as lead rider, from 2010 – 2016, on six Tours de France.   The WWMT has always been focused on projects that build foundations for a better world, through helping young people to change their « negative survival » lives into shining examples of what is possible.[lt]br /[gt][url=http://www.londonbmx.co.uk/about/bmx-legacy-project/]The London BMX Legacy Project [/url]is a perfect way to address the problem of the oppressive nature of inner-city life for so many youngsters. Here’s why :[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]•    It requires little space, investment or maintenance[lt]br /[gt]•    It offers a safe and controllable environment as an alternative to cycling on the streets.[lt]br /[gt]•    It requires kids to learn a real technique and thereby attain self-esteem, which is the key to a positive attitude to learning in general.[lt]br /[gt]•    A session of 45 – 60 minutes is often enough both for a learner and the more advanced. It has been relatively easy to get schools to include a BMX session in their curriculum, with a clear, positive impact on overall classroom performance.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt] [lt]img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/BIQlnuS8o6gdBKWzVP0OozPZ7sfgkyoBiFXPD1z6WzcAzK9e6gBv-RZKDOQAZETb6qsDL7KOoaLNrYHElgYFoFhzEgnwwXEV0F_cqs4SxdMAVxnZXsIBOOHTxu_XaLVu_CNNClmkZ4BOHe9uPVZ6uvG1149F0llgmuUYTbie4uI8dtI4r-iu-jhIl21lwR2nYkduMroxLhGEw1WFDTB6kR0mBeJmGe_bo2A5TBmxlHp1kVSaagHU50JxuI1Gq6PMni45CrcY2fAK1eHmyq2uPnZGh1FQZaBAiPA3i_wTRVZxc13iL97V5QLZEHaNdr7Okt5Pc7jZI8MCgWAWFqdFn9G-mWBirZIqBWgDxaAWlUKjQ8j9PN4f06TbkYDiiE2vcyLhVecLwx-red4DE6L6xJN_xfBMGF9tLaQDBeSXkucnpSCIbebyRiKy4G1AMglJqdwirAFqL5bbYdNdop3h5wy2qpfg9Ae49VeJOfKKWaaNii-dC5zo9NXQq1oQt8D5IrbrIhlcWOUGEu3xTn17nZ5Tu6nRyc7aRROndzg2rL7z-1Mv5DKeQemoNySkI_TWwWOo6nAobDO8RER8LIvW4Os8LUodM8f7B5_kPPhbyH4jcp5ZHsNiy5w70UfBpnmotBJ2eiMAGjP_UhrWfS3GJ5kszjpHKunT6vp4_NkCUQ=w794-h510-no" alt="" width="623" height="400" /[gt][lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt][b]An Expresso for Filipo[/b] - how we are going to raise even more than the £20,000 target :[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]Set up an ‘Expresso-for-Filipo’ pot at work or at home so that every time you have a coffee ON THE DAYS THAT I AM RIDING, you ‘buy me a coffee’ too.  [lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]You can send in the collection from time to time,  (the amount can start at £15) each time mentioning the name of one of my 180 ‘co-riders’ (for every £100 raised in his/her name he/she earns a CCC raffle ticket with an Amaro CCC frame ‘n forks and a set of Noble CCC wheels as prizes.)[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]THIS IS IMPORTANT: as long as the fundraising stays on target I will symbolically buy myself just ONE expresso per day to thank you (I drink no coke, take no caffeinated gels - this will be my ONE caffeine hit of the riding day), BUT if we fall below target, I will not allow myself this treat ! (If we double the target, I get TWO per day : one in the morning, the other for the ‘Yawning Hour’, after lunch.[lt]br /[gt][lt]br /[gt]See here the full list of riding days : currently we are ON TARGET ( £1 per kilometre ridden)!!
