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..?

Taking a Raspberry Pi on a bike to the Dead Sea...

They said it couldn't be done. But what do they know?
Between 11 and 17 March 2018 I taped a Raspberry Pi onto a bike and brought it to Petra, the Dead Sea, Mount Nebo, and Nazareth.

A little insulation tape goes a long way to stabilise your Raspberry Pi and battery pack on your trusty bike.

A triumphant pose overlooking the Dead Sea - the lowest point on Earth.

And here is what the readout looks like. Low pressure up on the plateau, high pressure down at the Dead Sea itself. As well as a flat bit where we had a picnic. Sadly the humidity data is a bit harder to interpret.

This is what part of it looks like on Strava - unfortunately I missed out the last part of the descent after the picnic, but you get the general idea. Let me know if you would like the raw data to play with - some potentially useful environmental information in there...
