Good trip yesterday. Rode alongside a beautiful river towards Kaunas. Had a peek at the Russian border on the way. After following the river for some miles the terrain changed and we started to climb a few hills (not fun). Met another 3 Rugute children as we arrived in Kaunas and received some more presents (paintings and a slab of Rice crispie cake, yum). Checked in to the hotel, had a wander around the beautiful city before having dinner. Earlyish night before the big push to Vilnius in the morning.
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
