As an extension of that, this blog and the trips into schools that I have planned to accompany it, are my way of trying to put something back. To encourage our children to stretch themselves, to look outwards and to believe that they too can take on pretty much anything that they put their minds too.
Please get them to follow me, (or any of the other riders, ) later this year as we push ourselves to the limits of what we are capable of. Get them to look at the countries we pass through. Their history and people, their wildlife and their culture.
It should be an amazing journey for us all.
This morning I have covered another 40 miles. I have heard my first Chaffinches singing their early spring song and rode alongside a Roe Deer and her last years fawn as they raced me to the hedge at the end of the field. I would have photographed them for you, but bikes, cameras and muddy roads usually end up badly, so I just admired instead.
