D&D cycling 216 miles for Renewable World
- My Story
We are raising funds for Renewable World by riding 216 miles (348km) over 2 days through the rolling hills (4255 metres of climbing) and forests between Durham and Edinburgh in June. Please sponsor us!
We tried this once before - and it has taken us 5 years to decide to attempt this challenge again... Knowing you're backing us will help us battle over the windswept hills, through the clouds of midges, and be that extra incentive to make sure we get back in the saddle on the second day!
You'll be supporting some great work! Renewable World is a really neat organisation that addresses several issues close to our hearts in an innovative yet simple manner. Working with rural communities in Africa, Asia and Central America, Renewable World develops and provides small scale renewable energy systems (such as solar, wind, hydro and biogas) to encourage self-sufficiency and alleviate poverty.
Some examples of the amazing work they do - be it from improving healthcare by providing families with clean water systems or promoting education by allowing children to study in the evening - are on their website: http://renewable-world.org/
We are covering all logistics costs for the ride so any funds that you give will go straight to Renewable World's work.
Thank you for any sponsorship you can provide!
