I'm riding the Etape Merca in August and raising funds for the Marie Curie Cancer Care charity.
I have emailed everyone that I know with an email address - many have been very supportive and donated via the Virgin Money Giving website...
But a few people have rung me up or emailed me to say what a great cause... I'll be supporting you... etc
But none of them have yet made a donation... is this a new phenomenon...? Where people have to tell you how good they are... but having done that, they don't have to actually do anything...?
Anyone else come across this...?
I just signed up to this night ride around the dark, streets of London on a Saturday night. Not sure what I have got myself into so have any of you riders done it before? Or are any of you planning it this time?
any insight gratefully received.
Hi all - I am taking part in the Vatternrundan this year as part of the 25 strong Cyclists Fighting Cancer team. The event is 300kms around Lake Vattern in Sweden in mid summer and attracts over 22000 riders! Just to make life interesting I am riding a Cooper Monza, modified with a SRAM Automatix Coaster Brake Hub and cow horn bars!!
Obviously you don't know me, but please search for Cyclists Fighting Cancer and pledge some pennies to this cause, or I have my own Just Giving page, message me for more info!!
Thanks, keep pedalling!!
