I am a keen cyclist, but even this ride is rather daunting. 185 miles and not exactly flat...

Event details

Riding the length of Wales in a Day

I have an "0" birthday this year, and to celebrate I am riding the 185 mile challenge from Caernarfon to Chepstow in one day. The money will go toward the school in Tunguli, Tanzania, via Mission Morogoro (MM) charity. Tunguli Secondary School is poorly resourced and MM has recently provided a safe water supply and learning materials. We are working closely with Beatrice, the head teacher, to complete and equip a much needed science laboratory. The money I raise will go straight to buying and shipping to the school equipment for the students to use. Education is such an important weapon in the fight against poverty and providing opportunities. Your donation will encourage me on the day, and in the demanding training schedule, preparing for the ride. Thanks for reading and taking an interest.
