For the past few weeks, our notice sheet at church has been highligting that Andy Witting and Jackie Lawrence are doing the London to Brighton Bike Ride for the British Heart Foundation. Having said that, most people know already as it has become quite common to pass one or other of them around the local area training (last time I spoke to Andy he was concerned that he’d only managed to get a block of time so far to do about half the distance so he’s not sure how he’s going to cope on the day!).
It is worth saying that it is quite a challenge, so I am genuinely impressed at anybody willing to do the ride. I always remember when some workmates did it many years ago, especially the comments on what the final uphill stretch just before Brighton was like!
Anyway, I got an e-mail through from Sarah saying that she’d been asked to do it at the last minute and has just ten days to gather sponsorship and get prepared. If you’re not sponsoring anybody else on the ride, or even if you are, Sarah is taking e-mail pledges of support on her blog.
