Greetings from Coniston! In just over a weeks time I am riding a tandem bike in Race Around Ireland, a 1350 mile lap of Ireland. Colleagues from the University are involved as support crew and one of the charities we are supporting through the ride is the University’s Circles of Influence, cancer research programme linked to Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
We will be riding on the National Cycle to Work Day 4th September and I wondered if there was scope to give the ride a bit of publicity to the University’s cycling community on that day? The race actually starts on 31 August and each support car has a GPS tracker to allow every racers progress to be followed in real time on the internet. There would seem to be a useful connection there and knowing more people are following our progress would be a great boost to us.
