"In another moment of potentially certifiable insanity, I have decided to undertake the Irish equivalent of Land's End to John O'Groats bike ride this summer (over seven days in June). This is a pretty mammoth task for me at the age of 56, but I figure what the hell, if I don't try now I never will.
I am riding to get sponsorship for Marie Curie Cancer Care and all the great work that they do, and also in memory of my aunt, Sheila Holdsworth, and, of course my great colleague Jon Davidson, both of whom were affected by Leukaemia.
If you are able to I would really appreciate you giving me some sponsorship - not least because it will help motivate me in my training schedule between now and June. I have set up a Just Giving page for this which is really easy to use for online payments. Be assured that the next few months will be likely significantly painful for me - as will the main event - and surely, that's got to be worth a few quid! UK tax payers: please remember to tick the Gift Aid box.
