Blimey this came up quickly! It seems like yesterday that my good mate Simon Fisher (who I met when I started my career at Concord Lighting 25 years ago) invited me to join him as he needed a challenge to further his goal to drop his weight by many stone and to be fit and healthy.
So today I travel with Simon Fisher down to Penzance – loaded bikes on the car to Reading and then a five and half hour train journey.
I have packed everything into a 60 litre bag and it weights an absolute tonne! It includes 40 energy bars!
I would like to start this blog by thanking all the chief sponsors and to all those who have kindly donated. We hit our 20k target yesterday which is no better way to start this mad challenge. Hope I can do you all justice.
