Wishing all the Team good luck glad to see you have chosen the "DOWN HILL DIRECTION" & you have taken your training seriously! Don't get sampling the Malts too much before you cross the border!! All the best and enjoy the ride.

I noticed this charity bike ride from John O'Groats to Land's End on Tom Watson's blog a couple of weeks ago, and it seemed like some people getting sore arses in a good cause. It stood out for me because my mother's family are Hurdman's, and because my own brother died too young of cancer four years ago. Gary Hurdman and his team, Sheila's Wheelers from Sandwell, are doing the ride to raise money for three worthy charities, and if you could see your way to donating a fiver (or more) to one of their three charities, I'm sure it will not only boost their coffers, but also their confidence. It is possible to donate online via the website.

All the very best of luck to Sheila's Wheelers on their crazy venture. I offer my wholehearted support on the condition that there are no photos published of any of you in tight fitting lycra >;o) Go for it, boys.

Some of the most memorable ideas in history have been dreamt up in the pub. Sheila's Wheelers is no different. A group of friends, cycling from John O'Groats to Land's end for no other reason than because they can. Oh, and to raise a sack load of money for three very worthwhile charities. I hope you will support them.
