Blackpool to Brighton on a Bike... Update 2

Hello All, I thought now may be a good point to put a little update on the blog about our plans for the Blackpool to Brighton cycle.

So it goes without saying that I have been training with some vague hope of increasing my level of fitness and stamina. Over the past few weeks I have covered about 200 miles on the road and 60 miles on a exercise bike. By far the hardest route I have covered so far was 47.6 miles and took in the local 'beauty spot' of Ditchling Beacon which is known to cyclists in the Brighton area to be a rather tough hill which climbs 176m over 1.8km with the steepest point being a 16.4% climb. I'm hoping in the next couple of weeks to push my one day mileage to 80 miles which is what we will be aiming for on our final trip!

We are looking for people or businesses to help with our fundraising effort, we really need to find some accommodation in both Blackpool on the 27th of July and Stoke on Trent on the 28th of July. If you have any connections in either of these places who may be able to help us please email us and let us know.

Remember that you can find us on Facebook (Search 'Milele') and Twitter (@MileleCharity) where we will be posting all the information about our fundraising trip. Finally you can now donate to Milele and sponsor our cycle via our text donation system; text 'FUND22' followed by £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 to 70070.

Thanks for Reading Richard
