Nothing to do with publishing

Sometimes you have to stretch yourself a little and what better way of giving you the incentive than to participate in a challenge for a worthy charity. When we heard that the Butterfly Hospice were organising a Big Bike Ride from Boston to Lincoln (a short 33-mile ride) I said to Liz, my wife, “Let’s cycle it on the tandem.”

She said, “Yes. Let’s do the return ride too.”

Now neither of us have ridden a bike for months (Liz for years) and the last time we rode the tandem we fell off after about two feet (if that). So, for us, it is a challenge. Our first preparation ride to acclimatise arses as much as anything else, not on the tandem just yet I hasten to add, went okay. A gentle 10.5 miles. We have to do that another five times, plus one more mile.

It is all for a good cause though so please sponsor us. You can do that here:  http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/LizandTerry . Thank you in anticipation.
