The dragon ride medio fondo

I am riding the 89 mile Dragon Ride "medio fondo" sportive in South Wales in June. This madness entails some of the steepest climbs in South Wales with around 1000ft of total ascent during the day. Being an overweight middle aged layabout this is going to prove quite a challenge.....

Why am I putting myself through this purgatory? I am doing this to try and raise some money towards my young nephew Ravi Adelekan's ongoing fundraising for the brain tumor charity (ravisdream.com). This brave little lad was diagnosed with a benign brain stem tumor at just 6 years old. This could not be entirely removed and he lives with its effects every day still. Despite this Ravi doesn't let this stop him living life to the full, and raising a tonne of money to help other kids like him. But we need mkr more!
