I'm delighted to announce that so far I have two corporate sponsors for my London to Paris bike ride in July. Expert Fitness Studio and Henley Chiropractic Clinic have agreed to be corporate sponsors on my ride. I'm also sure that their services will come in handy over the next few months.
At the moment I have a spinning class at Expert Fitness on a Monday lunchtime. Alison, who takes the spinning class, is very entusiastic and drives you for more effort. I also have a general fitness class with Richard on a Thursday. I have given Richard a nickname that can't be repeated on here. Jorgen at Henley Chiro takes care of my back which needs an occasional realignment.
I was out on my bike on Saturday morning in lovely weather. My route was about 15 miles from Henley through Dunsden, Sonning Common, Stoke Row and Satwell. Tomorrow I'm going to AW Cycles in Caversham to be fitted out for a road bike. Now with the lighter evenings I will be upping my training to include a couple of short cycles in the week with much longer rides at the weekends. I also realy need to lose some weight to make me lighter on the bike. Up to me really!
Remember to sponsor me at www.justgiving.com/phil-chappell. Every penny that you donate will go to Sue Ryder Care at Nettlebed as part of their Big Wigs Challenge 2010.
