Going Loop de Loop!

Wow, so much has happened since the last post way, way back.

We're all systems go for Kilimanjaro.  This means my life is taken up with fundraising.
I held a horse racing night down at the Memorial Hall in September and that raised a significant chunk of money.

Whilst contacting companies to get auction prizes, I ended up speaking to the good folks at Lightwater Valley who offered me the chance to do a "ride-a-thon" to raise funds.

Sooo, on 14th October I'll be riding on The Ultimate for as many times as I can to raise money.  Whilst this seemed like a good idea at the time, I'm getting more and more anxious as the day approaches.  

The ride is around 1.3 miles long (the longest in Europe) and is one of the bumpiest rides I've ever been on.  Knee and elbow pads will definitely be required!!

The local paper, the Ilkley Gazette, also featured an article on my plans, which was great of them, click on this link to see the article online.

Oh, and I'm also managing to get some walking in, most recently on the Stanza Stones trail (part of the Ilkley Literature Festival) from Bingley to Ilkley...
