Sorry for lack of blogg, too tired last night. Day three was very very hard my knees were very painful and the going was slow. We made changes to our destination (Silute) to shorten the route slightly and the lads helped me reach the end by taking the front. I started day four but it wasn't long before my knees were in pain again and after 30 miles I had to call it a day. I was in so much pain I could hardly walk to the support bus. The guys have been great and I'm still one of the team and hope to do the last 5 miles or so tomorrow as we reach Vilnius.
A simple blog to capture my experiences from a 500+ mile cycle ride across Lithuania in May 2012.
Ride for Rugute
I am cycling across Lithuania, again, to raise funds for the charity Rugute, which has been setup to support local children with cancer (http://www.rugute.lt/en/). I am joined on this 'adventure' by colleagues from Barclays in the UK and Lithuania. Rugute provides invaluable physical and emotional support to vulnerable children and their families. you can sponsor me here: http://www.globalgiving.org/dy/fundraiser/prevfund/gg.html?regid=4803
