I'm trying to do a good thing for a nice place. Marks Hall needs money to repair / replace the buggy, enabling elderly and disabled to access...

You can think what you like about this challenge, but it's not that long ago, that 800km journeys either happened self propelled, propelled by horse or not at all. I like cycling and it should be a fun challenge to do 4 big rides back to back. That's how I'm looking at this. I also want to raise money for a charity that's close to my heart and that enables access to the outdoors that I love, to people that might otherwise be unable to access it. Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page and if you're able to sponsor me, thanks also for your support.

Event details

Ride for Marks Hall

From August 26 to august 29 I aim to cycle approximately 800km from Mallow in Co Cork, to Marks Hall in Essex. It's about 940km, with about 140km of that over water (so I will rely on a ferry for that bit). I am to raise money so that the good people and volunteers of Marks Hall can fund the purchase of a new buggy which will enable the elderly and disabled to access the beautiful site. I believe that access to the outdoors is a privilege that all should be able to enjoy.
