Over the past few years, fantastic community members have put in their time for sponsored “danders” in various locations for charity. Â Many thousands have been raised and many blisters earned. Â A few of us have always liked the idea of going alongside these fine folk to raise money. Â But there has been a unavoidable issue.
We hate walking.
So, enter the “dash4dosh” (yes, it’s a facebook page. Â Please like and share it). Â Myself, Sean Cull, Chris Harris, Gregg Edred, joining some of our friends in Denmark and even potentially a few support cars are doing something silly.
We are riding bikes from our homes past the arctic circle and back to Wales, UK, to meet up with other community members. Â The final route is not sorted as yet, but it goes something like this for me.
Belfast->Stranraer->Preston->Harwich->Ejsberg->through Denmark heading east->the east coast of Sweden->Finland->West to North West Norway->South the west coast of Norway->back to Denmark->West through Denmark->back to UK->Wales->Belfast.
Mileage… a lot (no idea on numbers, but roughly 4,000 miles at least) on very little motorway. Â We are paying for all of this ourselves, but have setup a joint charity page for MacMillan Cancer Support. Â Please support me, or choose anyone else from the team and support them (or all of us,but I don’t want to be mean!).
We are geeks. Â You will be able to track us on the trip via a page linked to my iPhone.
Any help is appreciated of course. Â I have some ideas to try to get corporates and geeks to throw some cash at it too. Â These will follow later. Â So please do spread the word, and if you have money to spare, please sponsor. Â If not, some good vibes, support and sharing/linking the page would be appreciated.
