I like a challenge and last year I embarked on my first century ride. On completition i thought it would be a great idea to book onto this years double Century ride; 200miles and 12hours in the saddle. For a warm up and warm down i thought i would book a couple of centuries either side. On the 2nd of June I will be riding the Tour of cambridgeshire (100miles). On the 16th June I will tackle the Round Norfolk 200miles, and finally Ride London on the 4th August with the fnal century ride of the trio. Obviously this is for a personal challenge, but I have chosen a wonderful charity to ride for so please have a read below and see if you would be willing to sponsor. Any donation helps keep the peddles turning.
It truly is a fantastic cause
'The Mintridge Foundation is a registered charity dedicated to enhancing life skills in young people through sport. We provide a support network for young people by harnessing the power of positive sporting role models. The Mintridge Foundation assists young people of all ages, abilities and physical capabilities to develop confidence and resilience, and creates awareness of the importance of mental and physical wellbeing through sport.
Our team of Ambassadors - Olympians, Paralympians and other professional sports stars from over 20 sports, both team and individual - work with young people in schools, clubs and academies across the UK. Starting with visits including assemblies, coaching clinics and classroom sessions tailored to each organisation’s requirements, our ambassadors can then provide one- on- one remote mentoring in a safeguarded environment, delivered via technology such as Skype and Playwaze to build a lasting legacy for individuals.
The Mintridge Foundation’s successes demonstrate the incredible power of sport; from a mentee’s selection to represent Great Britain in their chosen field to enabling disabled children to find confidence and happiness just through participation. Understanding life after sport, we also support our Ambassadors in their transition from active sport to the next stage of their careers'
