Rich and Gina have made it to Lands End from John o’ Groats. About 900 miles or so of cycling, mostly it seems in the rain. Anyway, we’ll blog the full story soon, until now have a look at this…

Oh, one more thing. If you’d like to give something to support, please, please, please click here. It’s for Oli’s Ski Fund which is a charity to help a young lad with Cerebral Palsy. We wrote about it here if you’d like to learn more.

Yes, I am aware that sometimes I use this blog to yap on about giant statues of roses (thanks to Tom at CK for pointing out they’re not tulips). But this is more important.

Much more important.

Because Rich and Gina are doing something that is simultaneously daft and commendable and for charity – they’re cycling from John O’Groats to Lands End for a young lad called Oli who has Cerebral Palsy and is supported by the brilliant charity Cumbria Cerebral Palsy.

Well, they set off next week (so it’s probably going to start raining) and they need your support – so please visit their Facebook page and like it, and you can sponsor them by clicking here. Go on.

And please tell everyone you know.

Whilst Nicol and I both decided that skiing on Friday in the rain was a great idea, Rich and Gina decided to go up on Saturday. OK there were plenty more humans up there but there was also a reason for this – it was sunny and beautiful. As you can see (morally, of course, Nicol and I still win because we got up there first , despite being a little soggier).
