    Tonight’s news from Morvelo and their sweary socks (fabulous and full blooded response Morvelo – well done) has given me the kick up the backside to post here.

    I run a mountain bike club of sorts, called Sussex Muddy@rse. We ride on them South Downs a lot, as well as other local singletrack hangouts in Sussex and Surrey.

    My wife and a couple of the other girls in the Club have done some daft challenges over the last couple of years – they did the South Downs Way in day in 2014 and do some races and trailtrax events.


    Like Charlies Angels but with green wigs and a collection bucket

    This year they were pretty hard hit by Jenn’s death, with the result that they have dedicated their challenge this year to raising money for Macmillan.

    Planned activities are:-

    – Being sponsored to do the Trailtrax series – the more points, the more money
    – Cake sales and donation collecting at our Monthly Club rides (i.e. hanging out in car parks selling to the public)
    – Running a M@d Hatters tea party (Macmillan afternoon tea) somewhere unlikely e.g. between some switchbacks on a trail
    – Hosting a silent disco on the South Downs


    Event 1 – 50 quid to the good

    It struck me that we need to get the word out there to make sure that they raise as much as they can. We don’t need to promote the Club (its a voluntary Club with no membership fees and anything – we’re doing just fine) – I do want to blow their trumpet a bit – they have started the ball rolling by themselves. The target is £1000 this year for Macmillan.

    Here’s the link to the main thread Muddy @ngels for Macmillan, Fundraising in 2016 which contains links to all the event threads.

    If you see some people freezing cold in green wigs on your travels, bung them a quid or so please (next one, Firle Beacon, Easter Sunday)

    If you want join in on the other events or help out organise, join the forum and post (painless and free).

    Hope this is ok to post here (mods get in touch if not)

    Nice to see you again (Well nice for Mrs F- I was childcare today). Seems fitting that the last time we rode together was with Jenn in Brighton.

    I was trying to remember why you slummed it in my flat back then. It was bike related but I didn’t get further than that. Kids have addled my brain 😆

    I *think* it was a bonfire night ride up to watch Lewes try and set light to themselves. But may not have been. Like you part of my memories have been erased to make room for the words to the Frozen songs *sigh*

    You came up there with children just for some cake – and he calls us lot mad! 😀

    Oh and if you were desirous thereof to support these ladies in their quest, you might consider going here and bunging a few quid for Macmillian.
