Final sponsorship amount for @KidsCan_UK

Ade's Road Cycling Blog

Thanks to everyone who sponsored me over the last 8 months.  Between you all you’ve raised a total of £3,031.75 for KidsCan.  This is a fantastic cause and I’ve every confidence that this money will help to make a real difference.

Thank you once again for your kindness and generosity.

EDIT 03/09 – Final grand total!  £3,094.25

£39,952.60 for @TheBHF

Ade's Road Cycling Blog

Got this certificate through the post today.  It seems that the group of 31 riders from London to Brussels raised a total of £39,952.60 for The British Heart Foundation.  I suspect this figure probably doesn’t include gift-aid in which case the total will be even better.  Thanks again to everyone who contributed.

Final Sponsorship Total?

Ade's Road Cycling BlogSo I guess this is the final total for my sponsorship.  If you include gift aid then The British Heart Foundation will receive £2,028.50 from your very generous donations and sponsorship.

At the last count (last week) I was told that collectively the groups riders had raised £39,562.60 which I think is a pretty good amount.

Thanks once again.

Less than a month to go…

Ade's Road Cycling BlogThis time in a month I will be on my way from London to Brussels.  So far I’ve done 2,174 miles of training for this ride.  I’ve tried to increase my power and speed over longer distances, as well as test my mental endurance.  It’s been tough but enjoyable, and it’s not quite finished yet.  My sponsorship, on behalf of The British Heart Foundation, currently stands at £1,296 and it would be fantastic to get it up over £1,500 before I go.  If you have sponsored me, supported me on my training rides (Anthony, Martin, Martina, Phil, Graeme and the other North Cheshire Clarion guys), helped out with sponsorship (Debbie, Maginus, Giles) or baked cakes (Kate and Emma) I’d like to say a big thank you.  If you haven’t sponsored me then that’s easily solved 😉

Sponsorship Target Reached!

Brilliant news!  My sponsorship target of £1200 has been cracked today!  Actually, the total the charity will receive, including gift-aid, will be over £1500!

I ‘d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has sponsored me.  If you haven’t, there’s still time before July!  Keep your eye on Ade’s Road Cycling Blog for further updates.

March Update

So we find ourselves at the end of March.  I’m sat here thinking where on earth has the first quarter of the year gone already!

During March I’ve ridden the Chirk 200k and Todmorden Loops audaxes, in addition to the Mad March Hare sportive.  I’ve also done a few other training rides and my daily commute too.  In total in March I’ve done 563.9 miles and 21,490ft of climbing, using over 26,000 kcalories!  That means that so far this year I’ve done 1563.4 miles.  At present I’m only doing one “long” or training ride a week, usually on a Sunday.  As I get nearer to my sponsored ride I’ll probably move to both Saturday and Sunday to step up the mileage.

Another big milestone during March was breaking the £1,000 mark for my sponsorship, which now stands at £1,040.  Once again I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has contributed so far.  If you haven’t and wish to do so please follow the following link

Stepping it up – 1200 miles before London to Brussels?

So far I’ve only done 508 miles in January and 480 miles in February.  If the thing that’s stopped you sponsoring me so far is the thought that I’m not taking this seriously then let me tell you about my forthcoming plans for March, April, May and June.  Readers of this blog will know that I completed the Mad March Hare Sportive last Sunday and here’s what I’ll be doing going forward

So without any other riding there’s about 1200 miles there.  Surely worth some sponsorship for a worthy cause?
