I'm not really much good at cycling. I haven't owned a bicycle since I left school and over the last 50 years I have only had the occasional pedal on other peoples bikes! Now I have been cajoled by Peter Duke, who has accompanied Mary and I on almost all our sailing adventures, into buying a bike, trying to get fit and then cycling the length of the Canal du Midi. At least we will be close to water but hopefully not on or in it!
Please help me raise funds for the Jo Walters Trust which is really an excellent cause. Please click on their link below to find out more.

Event details

Atlantic to Mediterranean

Peter Duke and David Parson will undertake a remarkable journey of
roughly 500 km along the Canal du Midi with barely a stop at a café, bar
or any place of refreshment.
(Well, believe that and you'll believe anything)

All in aid of the Jo Walters Trust
