I'm cycling 300 miles in a month for Cancer Research UK

In memory of

Ruth Nelson: b5-3-1909 d3-5-1981

Thank you for visiting my Cancer Research UK Cycle 300 page. I came late to setting this up for March (it's the 10th!), but fortunately both my bikes have computers; on March 1st the workhorse Boardman stood at 12004, and the 'glamour' Condor had 3232 on the clock, so please accept the 65-odd miles already pedalled as 'legit' when I publish this and set off in earnest. Hopefully I will reach 300 miles by the 31st, but I'll try to outdo my target, too.
One more thing: please visit the new website for the Cycle Orbital network - It awaits a full-scale launch when lockdown rules allow, but in the meantime you can use it to plan an outing. It might provide inspiration for your own cycle challenge!
Meanwhile, every penny makes a huge difference to vital cancer research so please show your support with a donation to my page.

That's 319 miles since March 2nd, 254 since the official start on the 10th... I don't want to short-change my generous sponsors, and the weather looks good for these last 3 days, so I'll crack on! Maybe find the best blossom or magnolia display?

I remember your mother well. What a great way to remember her.

97 miles last week; 73 this, despite a short-lived thumb injury early on and much equinox activity. That's 236 miles so far; we are on track. And I'm homing in on the third updated target of £500, so big thank you to all who have donated so far.
