London to Paris Cycle Challenge 2011February 22, 2011 | 7:09 am
An open letter to anyone thinking of doing the above this September….
Dear potential cyclist,
I took part in the London to Paris Cycle Challenge last year. Why would I do such a thing, I hear you ask?
Would it be the opportunity to meet other people with Diabetes or Parents of Children with Diabetes?
Perhaps the chance to challenge myself to doing something I’ve never done before – cycling over 200 miles in less than 3 days?
Maybe the training that would be required in the lead up to it would help me get fit… was that the reason?
Surely the beautiful Normandy countryside, peaceful roads and sleepy french villages were the main attraction?
In fact, it was all of these, and one other very important reason…
I could raise some money for Diabetes UK whilst doing all of the above.
And before you ask, I shall be doing it again this year….. See you there?
