Hello Chaps, One day to go before my charity motorbike ride so this is my last request for sponsorship ((please).
Thank you everyone who has sponsored me already.
My motorbike has passed the MOT test today so it is safe. I have filled it with petrol so it should go the distance.
My next updates will be during the ride on Sunday.
I have now paid for Road Tax for my motor-beast and I have dusted it off and been for a ride round the block to make sure that I can still ride it because the last time that I rode it was for the DGR last year. I have read the map and have checked out the start venue in Mexbrough to make sure that I don't get lost early on Sunday morning.
With 3 days to go I am still an track to accomplish my quest.
Hello chaps, last week I went to Maltby Leisure Centre to give blood.
Today I received a lovely letter from the blood Transfusion Service thanking me along with a card telling me that my blood group was A RH Positive.
Clearly a Gentlemans blood.
If it was engine oil it would be Grade A with additives and Ferrari could put it into their racing cars. Then they might win some races.
Hello chaps, another progress update about my quest to defeat prostrate cancer.
First of all thank you to my recent sponsors, Nicola Wordsworth, Julie Fort and Vickie Weller for your generous donations to my quest.
I have been working hard to improve my bravery to ensure that I remain brave enough to complete the challenging ride on my motor-beast.
Following in the footsteps of Mel Gibson, Angus Mcfadyen, Patrick McGoohan and Bonnie Prince Charlie I travelled to Peebles in Scotland. There I undertook challenges, the likes of which even these heroes would been unable to have succeeded in because Go Ape didn't exhist in those days.
I remain on track to complete my quest.
Hello Chaps, A quick a progress update about my quest to defeat Prostrate Cancer.
Thank-you to Wifey for your very generous donation - the only one so far.
Following last night's success in finding that I was able to negotiate the dance floor at Dan and Zoe's wedding celebration, often on hands and knees, I decided that it was time to develop this prowess to being back on 2 wheels.
Four hundred and fifty cubic centimeters of a Honda Rebel motor-beast would have been a bit of an early challenge so we set off for Clumber park with our e-bikes.
At Oldcotes I realised I had forgotten the 'e'' part of the e-bikes because I had left the batteries at home. I zipped around the roundabout at Oldcoates taking out a Ford Ka (sorry), returned home and collected the batteries.
At Clumber, Wifey (my trainer) decided that we should attempt the more challenging route.
At this point I may need to apologise for terrorising the dog walking, icecream chomping and generally slow riding people who got in our way and suffered the consequences.
Tomorrow, I will train again. Be warned.
On Sunday the 24th of September, I will don my finest attire with my fellow men and women across the globe to join the fight with The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride to raise awareness for prostate cancer and men’s mental health. But before I press my tweed and polish my boots, I need you to donate what you can for this meaningful cause and help me reach my goal.
For your uncles, your brothers, your fathers and friends. Donate what you can, for their lives need not end.
Thank you for all the donations thus far!
Well done Alan, Keep up the good work.
Good Job Chap!
Well done mate
I wish you a great ride over the weekend be safe and enjoy John & Lynne
Have a good one, Uncle Alan! X
Good luck Alan! X
Is it that time of the year again?
