Yes you have read it correctly... I am doing training! hahaha Well into the training now! Out every morning and doing some long rides at the weekend. Cant wait for the ride now... some pre ride nerves starting to set in now!
I have posted some new pictures on the Pics Tab above... I was outside Aldi in Fleetwood fundraising for the ride. I am not sure how much money we raised as of yet as the donation boxes are locked and I am unable to count it! I will let you all know how much was raised when I find out! I must say thanks to those that helped me on Friday and Saturday... it was boring and tiring at times but well worth it. Thanks to Auntie Sue and Gran for helping on the Friday and Mum and Dad for helping out on the saturday!
Went for my first training ride in the states today. It was really nice to get out and ride after taking a couple days break. The weather is fantastic here, about 25 celsius. The Trek bike feels really nice, I did get a new saddle which makes a big difference to the long rides. Riding and watching football will be the agenda for the next couple days....Come on England! 
The Gazette did an article on us in this evenings paper....take a look!
Bought lots of new stuff for the ride today. Tomorrow we are getting our panniers and more! Thanks to MARELI Services for their donation to the cause. 
Been on a couple training rides with Ben over the last couple days.  The weather is very different (about 30 degrees cooler) to what I am used to and it is proving a little challenging. I have to wear plenty of clothes and even thought about wearing a bobble hat! Train tickets back from JOG have been booked, but we are struggling to get our bikes booked on the train...hopefully we will fix that little problem. All in all things are going well, fundraising has slowed down slightly this week so please keep donating!
Things are going really well. Training is moving along with Ben even doing a little! Thanks to everyone who has donated, we are moving towards our goal. Still need to book our train tickets back from John O'Groats, but should get them this weekend.
