I am one of 13 team riders tackling the 100miles (160km) at this years Prudential Ride London on the 2nd August and climbing approx. 1,318 metres which, is the equivalent of cycling to the top of Ben Nevis!. That's a distance of 1,300miles and 17,134 metres in elevation between us!
We are committing to many, many hours in the saddle and hope to raise as much money as possible for Samaritans in the process. You may be a keen road cyclist and complete this sort of distance on a regular basis but, we have only just purchased our first ever road bikes this year!
Our team 'Spin & Tonic' is aiming to raise £4,000 for the Samaritans - we have kindly been sponsered £1,436 so far but, only have 2.5 weeks until the big day! In total the Samaritans are aiming to raise £85,000 at this event!
Samaritans is a charity very close to our hearts, and we are very proud to be representing them in this event. All your donations, sponsership and support will help make a real difference to those struggling to cope.

Myself and the team thank you very much for your time & support.
