On Monday/Tuesday, my 11 year old nephew cycled just shy of 200miles throughout the Cotswolds, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and the surrounding areas to raise money for his Primary School and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

He did this over a 24hour period, in temperatures over 26 centigrade

I am shamelessley appealing to you all to donate a little bit of your retro budget, you know, the one that the Mrs (or Mr, in Alisons' case :wink: ) doesnt know about.

Last year, before he was even 10, he rode from his home in Worcester, all the way to Hebdon Bridge, via the Velodrome in Manchester, again for his school and Great Ormond Street Hospital..... so he has some pretty good form.

All this is off his own back... his idea... his motivation, his inspiration. Dig deep guys, he's a genuine little legend
You can donate at the Just Giving account my brother has set up

Thankyou so much

If anyone buys the Santa Cruz heckler frame/forks I am selling on here, I will give half the selling price to your nephew.
