Wow, our fund raising effort has been picked up by the administrators of the Virgin fundraising website, and they've added an entry for our cause in their blog pages.

With less than 3 months left (yeah I know, it's ages yet), the more organised members of the group have started preparations. When I say the more organised members, I mean of course mean Vikki.
Obviously, in order to carry out the London to Brighton bike ride each member of the team actually requires a bycycle. And here's Vikki proudly showing off her brand new purchase, still factory shiny.
Not only that, but Vikki's soo keen she set down a proposed schedule of training distances to work towards over the coming months.
|4th March||20 Miles|
|18th March||25 Miles|
|1st April||30 Miles|
|29th April||35 miles|
|13th May||40 miles|
|26th May||Clapham to Brighton|
Some of the less organised members of the group (yeah, yeah) haven't even pumped up the tyres on their bicycle yet!!
And finally, here's a few comments from the lady herself.
The arrival of my gorgeous bike means kick starting the training! I now have lycra, lights, baskets for ginger beer and cake and the will to get myself out there! I am scheduling a training ride for anyone who wants to join me on Saturday, 3rd March - meeting at Richmond Train Station at 0930hours ... will aim for 20 miles round trip - potentially with a pub stop on the way ;-) Just for a wee rest you understand! Will let you know how this goes, xx

An interesting video that our very own Vikki stumbled across, highlighting the fact that life is what you make you make.
Instead of sitting on your backside watching the TV all the time, get out there once in a while and enjoy yourself. Life is about what you make and the people you meet along the way. And a bicycle can be a wonderful method of getting into the outside and making the most of it.
