Bikes chosen, ordered and on their way: Thanks to Cycles UK!

We haven’t posted much for a while as sadly our Dad’s condition has deteriorated somewhat recently so our energies have been focused on being with him…

He is currently receiving excellent care at the Michael Sobell Hospice, but we are hoping that we will be able to bring him home in the next few days (so long as we can get adequate care at home to ensure that he is always comfortable). He continues to be as brave and wonderful as ever. Always an inspiration.

We feel more motivated than ever to complete our challenge, although training may take a back seat for the next little while as we just enjoy spending time with him.

In the mean time we wanted to share our progress on the bike front – probably quite an important element! After weeks of deliberating, learning and testing we have finally ordered our bikes 🙂 Having tried a LOT of bikes and receiving more advice than we knew what to do with we have finally settled on the Cannondale Synapse Tiagra

Thanks in large part to Danny at Cycles UK who has patiently helped us through the decision making progress and arranged for a fantastic partnership with Cycles UK meaning that we should be able to get all the gear we need without breaking the bank!

We are so grateful that Cycles UK are generously supporting the cycling part of our challenge! Thank you Danny and Thank You…

We should have the bikes within the next couple of weeks – so soon I will have no excuse not to cycle to work (10 miles each way should get me reasonably fit in no time!) but I’m sure the first few weeks will be a challenge… the first of many no doubt!

As Daddy says we will just have to Improvise, Adapt and Overcome.
