Next month I'm cycling 220 miles in 24 hours...Bristol to Leeds...in aid of the Brain Tumour Research and Support (BTRS) charity who cared for my late friend. Ian Meek past away last August after battling a brain tumour for 14 years. This is going to be a tough challenge for me...and I'm doing it on a mountain bike! It's scary to think that I actually cycled 65 miles with Ian this month last year.
Ian had a passion for cycling...and the celebrity lifestyle! He worked tirelessly raising the awareness of brain tumours...lobbying Parlament and even carried the Olympic torch last year...one of his many highlights along with numerous TV and radio appearances. It's pretty cool that Ned Boulting wrote a chapter in his On The Road Bike book about Ian...The Meek And The Mighty.
Ian managed to raise over £110,000 for BTRS...we are hoping to get to £125,000 pretty soon. So if any of you kind souls could spare a couple of pounds...doesn't have to be much...then please go to our just giving page:https://www.justgiving.com/philip-meek-carlos-dasilva/http://events.btrs.org.uk/?p=410
Top guy...sadly missed. Thank you all for reading...Carlos.
