Elmer the Elephant Bike

This year as my challenge I embarked on two cycle rides. The first was the Newcastle Cyclone - a distance of 90 miles and 6200ft ascent. The second was to complete the Rievers Bike ride from Carlisle along the border with Scotland and on to Tynemouth then home - 200 miles over two days. My target was 290 pounds, to match the number of miles covered,  thanks to every one for helping me to pass this.  The current total is 340 pounds. You can still make donations when you see me at shows, by adding a little extra to your order or on my just giving page:        
Many thanks to all of our customers who have already donated and last year helped me raise over 300 pounds  for Cancer Research.
