Alex Kaiser memorial ride
You might have seen the sad news about Bristol rider Alex, who passed away very suddenly three weeks ago:
His fiancee and a group of his workmates and friends are planning a 200-mile ride in his memory, with sponsorship going to charities that raise awareness of heart conditions in the young. There are 38 people signed up so far, mostly very occasional cyclists for whom that sort of distance is a real challenge.
Have a look at their website and bung them a few quid if you’re feeling flush. I didn’t know Alex personally but it’s hard not to feel impressed by the courage, determination and positivity that his friends are displaying after such a tragic event.Posted 5 years ago
His fiancee Sarah’s blog is also worth a read.
In other news, I now have a bike (BIG thanks to Frankie Stone) and have managed to not yet fall off….although there is some paintwork missing on my stairs, oil on my leg and a scuffed shin and I have only had it an hour…
Nice one. Keep us posted with how you’re doing.
Another update from Sarah:
– Money raised so far: £7500 (£9155 with gift aid)
– Number of donors: 323
– Celebs supporting: Holly Willoughby; Frankie Sandford; Antony Cotton; Fabrice Muamba; John Barrowman & James Cracknell
– The Cardiomyopathy Association receives no government funding and survives purely on donations.
At this rate we need to find approx 540 more donors so keep spreading the word people! Use this as a chance to reconnect with old friends; speak to distanced relatives or strangers in the street about http://www.thekaiserchallenge.com
