Kippers Bike Ride
23rd June 2014
Today I caught up with Derrick from DMG Timber who cycling the length and breadth of the country in aid of Cancer Care and Treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn. Despite not being a keen cyclist to say the least he’s decided to embark on the 20 day ride in memory of his Mum. His epic ride will see him cycle some 1150 miles and hopeful raise a further £5000.
I’ll be checking in with him every so often to see how he’s progressing but in the meantime if you’d like to donate please visit the just giving site by clicking here and give what you can.
Good luck Kipper!
Listen to our interview below.
Today I cycled from Truro to launceston near the Devon Cornwall border a distance of 51miles, very hard going. Weather was wet yesterday but good today.
Toughest day yet, I did 54 miles and came across the biggest hills I've ever seen. Weather has been great though!
I cycled through Bridgewater over the Severn Bridge in to Chepstow last night, thought this was gonna be an easy day until I hit the Mendips Hills! Hopefully things will get easier now.
I cycled another 58 miles today, faltter countryside for a few miles followed by lots more hills!
400 miles done so far... Heading for Whitchurch in Shropshire today.
Struggling in Clitheroe, Lancashire. Over half way now and approaching more hills. Should be in Scotland by Sunday.
