    I've been following the blog for a while now, great results down under and more recently in Spain (apart from the mechanical).

    I'll get online later today and do my bit.

    Cheers

    Thank you x 2!



    Get on board folks. Even just 2 euro. That's 20 cents a KM! :oops:

    D'oh!! 100KM ride. So that's all of TWO cents per KM!!

    For all the grief and entertainment and advice and helping organize the Spring Fling bike ride, etc, etc - all I'm asking for is a meager 2 euros per poster! Do something good and feel better for it!

    @Bikehawk- the ride is from Limerick to Doonberg on the Saturday. Also coming along for the ride is Mr. Greg LeMond. Details here: http://www.getbackchallenge.com/2010_Challenge.html

    Still mildly disappointed that almost no one has sponsored me to the tune of 2 euros!! Lots of you support my goal of the Paralympics - now show it! (Pack your bags, we're going on a guilt trip)
  • PokerfacePokerface Posts: 7,960
    Thanks to those that have donated so far! Halfway to my goal. Only €250 to go...

    FINAL PUSH TO RAISE FUNDS.

    And if I raise the €500 I need to, I am entered into a draw for a free bike - which I will pass on to one of the people that donated funds to my campaign. And there have been precious few so your odds would be very good!

    Essentially I need to help raise funds for the Irish Paracycling team to get us to the London 2012 Games. And will doing a 100km charity ride to do my part. And so... if you have ever read my blog, laughed at my posts on Facebook or Bike Radar, ridden with me for fun or against me in competiton - or just would like to support the Irish Paracycling squad, please follow this link and donate ANYTHING. I mean it – ANYTHING.

    Done - and liked your comment Des!

    Sure the 100km will be a doddle, but looks like you're in pretty good shape for the games too!
