so i am riding 100 miles on my own
Please sponsor me now as I set off in...
Cancellation of the ride is terrible as Diabetes UK normally has about 100 volunteers riding to raise money for them.
This picture is a small part of the team that rode for Diabetes UK but they cannot this year.
That is why I am riding my own 100 mile route and asking you for sponsorship.
What does Diabetes UK need money for anyway? It was set up in 1934 by HG Wells who had diabetes.
Radical from the beginning Diabetes UK aimed to ensure everyone could get insulin whatever their financial situation.
Now it funds research and helps diabetics with all aspects of their care.
I will ride 100 miles by riding north to Swains Lane, a killer hill where George Michael, Karl Marx, Michael Faraday, Henry Moore and many other famous people are buried. I ride up more killer hills in north London and then I will ride south to Canonbie Road, another killer hill, with a stop at home for food and water. That should be about 50 miles. Then I will ride on the flat and up some more killers till I have clocked up 100 miles.
