in a fortnight I’ll join 20,000 other riders (most, if not all, faster than me) in tackling 100 miles of the Olympic Road Race course from Stratford, through the Surrey hills and back to the Mall for a sprint finish / wobble over the line.
It’s the first time I’ve done something like this, but I’m reliably assured it will be painful and hellish. But hopefully not pointless: Only this week we heard sad news: a cyclist was crushed in a preventable accident with a lorry for the third week running. It has to stop.
I’m raising money for London Cycling Campaign, who work to make cycling safer and more accessible for all Londoners. Their work is vital in improving safety for cyclists but also pedestrians and other road users, delivering benefits in training and infrastructure, as well as providing post-accident support.

Any dosh you can spare, of any amount, would be extremely welcome. 100% of all donations will go straight to LCC.
Thanks very much, and have a great weekend,
