In around seven weeks’ time I’ll be attempting to cycle 100km (62 miles) overnight around the cold, dark streets of London to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. My nan died last month after battling cancer for much of her life so this feels like a nice way to remember her and help others who need help.
I’d be so grateful for your support and any small donation you can make. The donation page is open now at www.virginmoneygiving.com/allister; every penny goes straight to charity.
My training is now underway although this has mostly consisted of playing with my new bicycle bell and wondering why padded cycling shorts make me look so absurd. I need to get some serious miles under my belt over the next few weeks; if you see me wheezing along the road near you give me a wave.
Thank you for your support, wish me luck!
