Over the past two years I have become a keen cyclist and am using this interest to get myself in shape and raise money for a very worthwhile charity, namely Rugute (http://www.rugute.lt/en). I can't speak too highly of this Lithuanian charity which does so much work for young children and their families and it is the least I can do to help raise a little money to support their cause.
This blog goes a little way to detailing the events before, during and after my events for this charity, which so far have comprised of a 460+ mile circuit of Lithuania in 2011 and will soon be followed with a 500+ mile circuit in May 2012.
If subscribers of this blog are interested in supporting the charity, you can see my Global Giving page at http://www.globalgiving.org/dy/fundraiser/prevfund/gg.html?regid=6741 or alternatively you can donate at the charity's web site above (if you do happen to use the latter option, please drop me a message to this blog to let me know how much you sent so I can track the funds we've raised this year).
Whether you donate or not, I hope you enjoy the messages I post and the tails of my adventures and training experiences.
Thanks to one and all.
