Update on our progress....

 

Thanks to the awesome generosity of our family, friends and you guys on here we've gone past the £500 barrier today, so thanks to everyone who has supported us. Our target is £750, which I'm pretty confident we'll get, but I'd really like to push it to over £1k if we can.

 

Our "training" rides have been getting a little longer as Toni has been getting fitter and faster and last month we easily passed the 300 mile mark, so we are going to make the grade with the challenge. In true Carpe tradition, a great incentive is a coffee and cake stop at the end of the ride (or somewhere en route too if a longer ride) and the good news is that we've earned the calories in the cake, so no fat boy, just slim. :-)

 

Thanks again guys, you're all bloody awesome!

Many Thanks, much appreciated. We're up to £680 now, so our target of £750 is looking very possible to achieve.
