Summer Fundraiser

I launched my summer fundraiser yesterday. In place of doing the Prudential Ride London, I’ve decided to ride 1000 mile for Blood Cancer UK between July 16 and August 16 - finishing with completing the PRL100 on the Zwift platform.

Read about it on my blog! :slight_smile:

Good luck Dave. My SIL did LEJOG a few years back. He is enjoying getting out on the bike again since lockdown. Will donate in the next few days

Thanks guys! however, I’ve been off the bike for a couple of days. I didn’t quite factor the effect of a daily ride would be on my anatomy!
Including the first few days of the ride, I’d ridden 18 days consecutively. As a result I “think” I’ve given myself an infection due to perineal pressure. I’ve been on antibiotics since Thursday. I say “think” as I’ve not had face to face with GP, only telephone consultation, describing symptoms, which I foolishly omitted to mention the bike ride. But I did some research and it does kind of add up for me, but I do have appointment booked in after I complete meds etc…Temperature hit 38.9 at one point to so have done a covid test to rule that out.

I’m much better today, temp normal, appetite back and I’ve swapped my saddle to a more ergonomic one that was on my other bike. Hopefully, I’ll get back on saddle tomorrow to continue my journey !

Bear this in mind folks if you are planning a multi-day bike ride!!
