All ready to set off....

Well, after months of talking about it, the team is ready and tomorrow the Ten Countries in Ten Days cycle ride sets off....a new adventure waiting to unfold....

We have reached the target that we set ourselves in respect of the fundraising for Cyclists Fighting Cancer.....but this doesn't mean that the fundraising now stops....No....No....No...
If you have been intending to support us but haven't got around to it yet, now is your chance..... 

Everything extra that comes in now will have the effect of turbo charging our cycling efforts, so don't hold back just empty your pockets of that loose change and click on the justgiving button on this blog and pay it in...
It is a fantastic cause that we are cycling for and all donations really are appreciated...

We will be tweeting throughout each daily stage and a review of the daily stages will be posted on this blog every evening subject only to us having a signal......

All the team have worked really hard to prepare ourselves for the 10in10 and it's not as if any of us are youngsters anymore and that makes it an even bigger challenge for us all....

Us 'oldies' take a bit longer to recover after a big day's ride, so ten days back to back without a rest day, with daily mileages up to 100miles and climbing up to 9,000ft of ascent on the latter stages of the ride really is a pretty major challenge.....

We will all be doing our very best to succeed.......
