A New Warden at Shallowford

A New Warden at Shallowford

I’m sitting at my desk fully intending to write an amusing and informative article –  but it’s far too easy to ‘lift my eyes to the quiet hills’ and watch the clouds scudding through a blue sky. The birds are …

CYCLING CHALLENGE – SEPT 2018

OVER 5 CONSECUTIVE DAYS, I PLAN TO CYCLE BETWEEN HOME (BOVEY TRACEY) AND WORK (EXETER)

THE CHALLENGE:
The total distance cycled will be 150 miles, 65 miles is uphill, with 3550m equivalent vertical ascent, and I still need to work each day!

To put into perspective: 150 miles distance cycled is the same distance as Exeter to Birmingham. 65 miles uphill is the same as Exeter to Bristol.
Haldon Hill is an inescapable barrier for me (see profile of route below – Bovey Tracey to Exeter). Climbing it over 5 days is the real challenge. The total vertical ascent over 5 days is 3,550 metres – the same vertical ascent as Mount Snowdon, Ben Nevis and Scafell put together!

THE REASON:
I want to do it to raise money for (East) Shallowford Farm, a charity I have close links with.
See https://shallowfordfarm.co.uk/.
It is a working Dartmoor hill farm, and also provides Dartmoor rural farming experiences  for youngsters, particularly those from a Youth Work in Battersea London, known as ‘Providence House.’

THE DATES:
17-21 September 2018

THE REQUEST:
Please feel free to sponsor me and raise money for this very worthwhile cause!
You can give direct to me at home or work, or Debbie/Serena at the farm, or give online at:  https://www.give.net/20111993/oneoff  (please add reference to Sept Cycle Challenge if using this option.)

I aim to raise £1000.00, which will cover the total cost of a group of 10 teenagers from Providence House, travelling to and visiting the farm, for a weekend in October 2018.

THE THANKS:
Thank you for your support!
