Hi All,

I am very grateful to my daughter to setting up this blog. My plan for the time until August 18th is to cycle as much as possible. Most days I hope at  least to go the nearest town, Bungay and back, a distance of only 12 miles but with perhaps the best hills in Suffolk which is not of course a hilly County. At least once a week I hope to do a longer distance of between 30 and 50 miles and then each week I go on the U3A cycle ride of about 20 miles.  Early in February I expect to take delivery of a lighter bike being put together by a cycle shop in Lowestoft.

At the moment I am preparing ‘literature’ which will be posted on this site when it is ready.

One thing this will emphasise is that we will only be asking people to say they HOPE to sponsor me for so much per mile.  Per mile will be important because I may not complete it and still more because if each mile makes a difference that is a big psychological boost.  Please don’t send any donations before I have undertaken the ride.

By all means follow the blog even if you do not intend to sponsor me. There are endless worthwhile causes and we do well to choose a few rather than spread our gifts thinly which involves too much of what we give going in administration costs.
