Event title: mini-hatler rides 200 Miles in a Day
Event date/s: Monday September 27th
Event location: London - Brighton - Oxford - London

Beneficiary: Mind - https://www.mind.org.uk/

All,

This coming Monday (September 27th) mini-hatler is cycling London - Brighton - Oxford - London, with the aim of being in the pub back home in Wimbledon by no later than 9pm.

He's doing it as a personal challenge and is also hoping to raise funds for Mind.

Any and all donations would be incredibly welcome.

(And spare a thought for his parents, who are being press-ganged into accompanying him on the first two legs, mum on the first, me on the second. He has no bones in explaining that we are there to slow him down, so he doesn't blow up too early. The ruddy cheek !!!)

This is what happens when you are foolish enough to have a four year old stoke you up Ditchling Beacon on a trailer bike in the company of The Fridays.

Many thanks for whatever you donate.

How old is MH now? Last time I saw him he was disappearing into the distance on Ditchling Beacon.

Done, though you won't know me by name. I reckon the coffee you supplied us with a few years ago at the foot of Ditchling Beacon was well worth a donation!

Great stuff.. donation given
You star !!! Many many thanks for doing that.

I haven't had any contact from him since he set the page up, though I'm pretty sure he wasn't expecting it to go so well so quickly. He'll be well chuffed.

Excellent. Donation made. I was going to post that photo I took of you cycling on a Brighton ride, but I couldn't find it.
Tim,

Brilliant !! Thank you so much.

I suspect he's getting close to an amount he thought so unlikely that he made a commitment to do something extra. I may be allowed to reveal details ....

And the extra commitment is : -

"As an added incentive, if we raise over £1750 I'll be adding to the suffering and waxing my legs so I can channel my inner pro cyclist as well as squeezing in a few aero gains."

Result. After brutal start on the London - Brighton leg. Strong Southerly and sheeting rain as we hit the top of Ditchling. In Brighton we were both nearly blown off our bikes on the corner by the Palace Pier.

A wild ride along the front to Shoreham and then it all turned peachy.

Started cycling at 4am and he stepped into the pub at 10.45pm.

And he's raised over two grand. Incredible stuff.
