Welcome to Stuart’s London to Paris Cycle Ride

PLEASE DON’T WAIT – DONATE! Go to my page on the JustGiving website.

Read about the work done by Computer Aid International

I’m going to be cycling from London to Paris to raise money for Computer Aid International who refurbish old computers for worthwhile projects in less fortunate countries.

On Friday May 6th I will be meeting with a group of about 30 riders somewhere in South-East London very, very early in the morning – my first big challenge, as those who know what I’m like in the morning can testify!

From there we set off on the first day of a 3 day ride to the Arc de Triomphe, a total distance of a little over 300 km. Our objective on the first day is the port of Dover, about 114 km riding and a total cumulative climb of about 9,000 ft – blimey!

But before I can even join the ride I must show I can raise the target amount of £1350, so I need to be well on the way to this at least a month beforehand. This is because the charity, Computer Aid International, needs to at least cover the costs of the ferries, b&bs, support vehicle and luggage carrier, etc., with the balance going towards their charitable activities.

So please, if you would like to donate, do so as soon as possible. By using the JustGiving website you are adding basic rate tax to your donation courtesy of HMCR. This does involve you in completing a short form, but also results in more money going to the charity. If you really do not want to donate this way, then by all means donate direct to me by cheque or cash.

My next blog will tell you a bit about my training schedule.
