Garry does something worthwhile shock!

Four friends and I are going to be cycling from London to Cambridge, that's 60 miles, on the 26th of July, to raise money for bowel and breast cancer research.
One of my best friends, Paul, who is cycling with us, was diagnosed with bowel Cancer last year. The fact that he is able cycle with us is a testament to the quality of modern treatment. I'm just happy that I'm cycling with him and not in his memory. Our aim is to raise £5,000 between us.

Seeing as the ride comes just a few weeks before my 50th birthday and I've spent the last 10 years mostly sitting on my arse this is quite a big thing for me. I also doubt that I'll be doing this sort of thing on a regular basis, if fact the last time I asked for sponsors for anything was Run the World in 1986 so it's safe to consider this a one off. I've given my bike a service, dug out my lycra cycling shorts (calm down) and have spent the last month or so getting myself fit (well, fitter).

If you would like to sponsor me please click the link which will fill you in with a little more info and take you to our Just Giving page so you can make a donation online.
