TRAINING BLOG: Great Dun Fell, April 2015 In April, in preparation for Mont Ventoux we climbed Great Dun Fell, the highest paved road in Britain. It was both brutal and rewarding.... Please sponsor us at: www.JustGiving.com

A little bit about us:
Over the past 42 years Richard has been a keen armchair cyclist. He has taken part several (small) charity bike rides over the years cycling with his Father & brother. Up until this year Richard has had his hands full juggling a family and a business which has resulted in very little cycling being done... until now! In 2008 Richard's father died from Cancer, he is embarking upon this challenge in memory of his Dad, Keith Playford. Please sponsor us at: www.JustGiving.com At 39 years old Simon has never ridden a road bike before buying one earlier this year, specifically for this challenge. Simon is a keen mountain biker and a gym fan but has never participated in a challenge like this. Simon is embarking upon this challenge as Cancer has recently made an unwelcome appearance affecting close family members. Please sponsor us at: www.JustGiving.com
