Good grief - I thought this was going to get *easier* when I built up the muscles a bit. A little 20 mile run out to Carnfunnock Country Park in the wind and rain - no problem. Until I decide to do the 20 miles home again. This time the wind has changed, and it's blowing directly against me. In gusts - so every time you work up a bit of speed, it saps it completely. The last 5 miles via Carrickfergus was positively painful. On the plus side, it's unlikely that we'll have anything like that in Jordan.
I thought I was Ready.
I may have thought wrong.
We're doing it again! This time we are biking from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital CT Scanner appeal. Last year we raised over £50,000 for the Children's Unit! Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel; the people are lovely, and the kids are awesome. Nazareth also treats kids in the West Bank of Palestine who have very limited access to healthcare. They need your help! Go to my sponsorship page to find out more and see what you can do! Maybe even join us..?
