The Dartmoor Classic

The Dartmoor Classic is now just 7 weeks away and my winter and spring (well winter!) training regime has meant that I can now fit in to the bespoke cycle jersey that has been made for the big ride!

It’s tight isn’t it?  Imagine how it looked when I was half a stone heavier!

To date, through personal and company donations, I have raised over £4,500 for The Josh Carrick Foundation.  My target is £5,000 and I would therefore welcome any support you are able to offer.

To make a modest contribution to the Foundation’s good work, I have decided to take part in one of the Country’s most popular and gruelling cycle sportives.  The Dartmoor Classic is a 100km bike ride over the notorious ‘tors’ of the National Park and is being held on Sunday 23 June.  The event is famous for its punishing hill climbs and although it’s not a race, it is timed and there are medals at stake!  Having taken up road cycling last year as phase one of my mid-life crisis, I thought I ought to have a crack at this challenge.  As there are no pubs on route, I decided that I needed a charitable cause to sharpen up my motivation.  Raising money for The Josh Carrick Foundation will make those dark moments on the ride seem well worth it.

I would be very grateful for your support and thank you in advance for any contribution you are able to make.
