London to Cambridge bike ride 2007

David has kindly reminded me that it's only a week and a half until the London to Cambridge bike ride in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Anyone who wants to sponsor him, Clare and Naath should head on over to damerell. If you want to sponsor me try here instead:


Obviously I'm mostly doing this for the ride, but I do think it's a good cause. Last year Mike and I raised £145 between us for it. The most entertaining bit may well be the 11 miles through north London to the start of the ride from our crash space, altogether this should take the ride to just under 60 miles (the offical route is listed as 50 miles, but is more like 47 in practice). We're not in shape at all, but on shiny new bikes since last year, so we reckon it won't kill us.
