London Bikeathon in Aid of Leukaemia Research

Today was the 13th London Bikeathon http://www.londonbikeathon.co.uk/ in aid of Leukaemia Research http://www.lrf.org.uk/.

We did 51.77 miles in 3 hours 57 minutes at an average speed of 13.09 mph. We didn't bother to ask for sponsorship. They suggest a target and we simply both send in a cheque sponsoring the other. We will save the begging letters for a BIG event.

Well done to you and Mary for supporting a worthy cause, I lost my niece and great niece to Leukemia (yes mother and daughter) so know how much research is desperately needed.

By the way, my word verification is The Dr. Weird, do, do , do , do.
