Cycling across the Canaries on £20 for charity

This May Day week I'm going to be taking on a bit of a budget challenge:

I'm going to be flying to Lanzarote with a bike that has cost me 99p to try and cycle across all 4 of the major Canary Islands taking in their highest ride-able peaks.

My budget for the trip (excluding the flights and the ferry fares) is going to be £20. If I can get to Playa De Las Americas on Tenerife via the highest bit of tarmac on Mt Teide I'll have made it.

Reckon I can do it? You can find out here -

And if any of you are blessed with deep pockets you might fancy sponsoring me. I'm raising money for Re-cycle Bikes a non-profit community enterprise that provides excellent repair and maintenance services to the public as well as subsidised or free bikes to less fortunate members of the community as well as asylum seekers and refugees in the Sheffield area.

My Just Giving site is here -

Thanks for reading and for any donations!
