A message from Richard Tarran MVO:
I set off on my crazy challenge to cycle from John O'Groats to Paris taking just 9 days and it's not a relay on 6th May 2016. I will be joined on various legs by the likes of Will Carling, Peter Winterbottom and Roger Utley plus the Olympian Greg Searle.

I'm raising money to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy within 10 years. Ali a friend of mine has set up the ride because his 3 year old son Felix has DMD. We will be joined at the Channel 4 TV studios in London by around 100 other cyclists to cycle within 24 hrs to Paris.

I'm on catch up with my training. I managed York and back the other day which is about 110 miles and that will be near our daily total plus lots of climbs especially in Scotland.

Please sponsor me and also pass this email to any other potential
donors. Any supporters are welcome to come and say hello as we arrive at Murrayfield on the 8th May or Twickenham on the 12th.
