Hi, I'm Chris, and will be riding from Bristol to Bordeaux in 4 days this July.

All contributions go directly to PROPS, a Bristol charity whose mission is help young adults with learning difficulties and disabilities reach their full potential. Through friends, I've known of PROPS for many years. I'm really pleased its my turn to raise for them.

I've been riding bikes since the year dot, riding for myself in many events over the years. It's now about time I did something for someone else, and with your help, we can make a tangible difference to this great charity.

I ride a bit, so the legs should be fine(!) Although I'm slightly nervous of chronic back ache these days and a few other middle aged ailments. Spending this much time in the saddle will be interesting. But hey, live a little eh? Ride till something breaks I say!

July seems a long way off, from this cold grey January morning, and with a little excess from Christmas evident, it's time to start getting ready. PROPS has Saturday rides which I'll try and make continually now, to get me working again.

A massive thanks for reading this far, and if you can contribute, all the better. Every penny counts.

Well done. Although I am suspicious of possible train/bus help as no witnesses to this "blood, sweat and tears" journey!! ;-)
