I’ve tweeted about this a few times, but a little blog post won’t help either:
I’m doing the Jennings Rivers Ride – Big Ride Out on Sunday 15 September, in aid of the Cumbria Community Foundation, and all the good work they do for community groups in the county.
The ride is a 75 trek through West Cumbria, taking in some of the rivers that flooded a few years ago. The route takes in three challenging Lake District passes – Whinlatter, Newlands and Honister – and all of these come in the last 20 or so miles.
As you may know, I broke my back about six months ago when cycling.
Thankfully, I am now more or less fully recovered, and enjoying my cycling again. However, the Rivers Ride will still prove a challenge for me. It’d be a challenge if I hadn’t broken my back, but it’ll be even more so now.
But it’s a challenge I want to take on as part of my recovery and to support the Cumbria Community Foundation’s great work.
