July Training Update

What a month of sport!

First a fantastic achievement by team SKY at the Tour de France. An inspirational win by Bradley Wiggins with fellow Brit Chris Froome in second! The first time the tour has been won by a Brit in it's 108 year history! Brilliant!

Followed up quickly by the start of the 2012 London Olypics and further inspiring performances every day since it's start and another couple of weeks yet to come! :o)

A good month for me too. I started the month achieving my target of getting under that previously elusive target of 3 hours taking over 14.5 minutes off my previous best to finish in 2hours 53mins! Still elated with that performance :o)

Training and fundraising for my next RNLI challenge is also going well.

My Coast to Coast Cycle challenge along the Way of the Roses will take place from the 24th to 26th August 2012. 170miles from Morecambe to Bridlington.

Pledges of £589 received so far with a few weeks to go and corporate dress down days, cake bakes and raffles still to come. Thanks so much everyone for your support to date! Tried a new tack that seems to be working well this year too in shirt sponsors of my tour cycling shirt. Three definite and one 'maybe' corporate sponsors so far and a mock up of how it will look to the left. Two spaces left if any corporate sponsors would like to add their support?
