Hope this isn't out of place on here. I've signed up to do the 55k Ruthin MTB Marathon on 31/8/13. Something I've wanted to do for a while as a personal challenge, just to see if I can do it!
I'm now also doing this ride in memory of my dad, who passed away in June after suffering from an aggressive form of brain tumour.
I'm looking to raise some money for Brain Tumour Research by doing this ride. Brain tumours are the leading cause of cancer deaths in the young - and Brain Tumour Research is woefully underfunded at the moment.
