we have our challenge

Being the democratic little group we are, we held a vote this year to decide what our challenge should be for 2010.

It was close all the way through, and we had a great range of challenges including 4 mountain climbing and 3 cycling challenges. In the end, it was a straight race between the Coast to Coast cycle ride and the Lake District 24 Peaks. Both are tough, and are going to take some serious work, but the winner for us is the Coast to Coast or C2C.

Now the hard work starts again ......... watch this space !

25 January - Having only decided yesterday that we'd be doing the Coast 2 Coast Cycle Ride, today we got our first bit of publicity, completely unexpectedly but most welcome. BBC Radio Cambridgeshire were running some fund-raising stories on Drive Time, and they wanted to talk to us about the 3 Peaks and plans for this year.

Our regular voice wasn't available, so it fell to the other Chris to pick up the story - ha, ha, ha - yes we know he's quite athletic and does this kind of thing all the time !! Listen to the interview by clicking on the radio.

6 July - Things have been pretty quiet but as we enter the last 10 days or so, the final elements of planning start coming together. We have a final, final team, and although we've had some people having to drop out for a variety of reasons, the team of 16 seems just about right - 14 cyclists and 2 support drivers.

The final, final team therefore are:

Chris Welsh Peter Reynolds Paul Blacktop Paul Taylor
Phil Barnard Phil Stanbridge Carl Hillen Simon Crow
Steve Ratcliff Alok Sharma Craig Abbs James Tully
Robert Allsop Richard Baronowski Eddie Thompson Chris Clingham

A big welcome to the guys in the green boxes - they're all new members to the team.

We have just 10 days to go before we set off on our next adventure - wish us luck !!
