Welcome everyone to my Giving page,
I'm looking forward to riding in the annual Rotary Dorset Bike ride this coming Sunday 8 Sept, and hope to raise £50 for Cancer Research.
I'll be riding the 55 mile route on my Giant Defy road bike....weighing only 10kg with drop handlebars & 25ml width tyres, it's VERY different to the hybrid I've used for the past 2 years.
With only room for a small under saddle bag, I'll be travelling light!
Most of my practice rides this summer have been in France in the Minervois on some BIG hills, concentrating on overcoming my fear of descents.
After 6 weeks (with lots of early morning solo rides), downhills don't seem quite as scary now.
Thank you for your support and good luck to everyone taking part on Sunday.
The Rotary Bike Ride has gained an excellent reputation for great routes through the Dorset Country lanes as well as being very well organised and a great day out for all involved, to date the event has raised over £270,000 for life saving research.
