On Tuesday the 1st of May 2012, my challenge of cycling 5,000 miles over the course of a year will begin.
I’ve set myself this challenge to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (“JDRF”) which focuses on curing Type 1 diabetes as well as providing support to young people diagnosed with the illness.
You can provide your support by donating, however big or small, to my fundraising page: http://www.virginmoneygiving.com/conradoldcorn.
I’ll be updating this blog regularly with information about JDRF and my experience throughout this year. Get ready for many photos of broken bike components and Conrad in pain.
All of my rides over the next year will be tracked using my GPS cycling computer and my progress will be publicly visible on an online tracker.
The first cycle starts of the 1st of May 2012, wish me luck!
