Susie is taking on this huge challenge to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society in memory of her mother who died from complications due to Dementia in 2016.
If you wish to make a donation please go to her Just Giving page. (sorry but I don't know how to insert a direct link)
Susie starts her challenge in Scotland this Easter, taking on the 89ml route with 7000ft of ascent including Britain's longest climb, Belach Na Ba
(if you are still to plan your Easter break feel free to join her at Kinlochewe over the Easter weekend)
Susie thanks you for your donations in advance and extends an invitation to any Tyneside Vagabonds who may like to join her on any of the other rides she plans to complete which are listed below.
Forest of Bowland 22nd April 100ml with 8,074ft ascent start Milnthorpe Cumbria

Wiggle Sussex Gran Fondo 122ml with 4,963ft of ascent start Fontwell West Sussex (this is the actual date of the event and Susie has entered, so if you intend to join her for this ride you will need to enter the event)

If you wish to contact Susie regarding a donation or joining her on one or more of the rides tel. her on 07968392836
*remember apart from the Wiggle ride, Susie's rides will take place outside of the Sportive dates, so if you do join her you will not have entry fees to pay
A great weekend was had by all.
Next up Forest of Bowland sportive route on Sunday April 22nd starting at Milnthorpe Cumbria 100ml with 8,074ft of ascent. Any Vags wanting to join Susie on this ride contact her via the forum or her mobile (details on earlier post)
Or if you just want to donate to the Alzheimer's Society visit her Just Giving page.
Forest of Bowland ride completed yesterday, 100ml with 8,734ft of ascent. I'm a bit biased coming from Lancashire, but the riding around the Trough of Bowland is some of the best countryside in the country, and plenty of hills!
The weather was mostly kind to us dry and overcast but the headwind for the first 50mls made for tough going, but the tailwind ascending Cross of Greet was welcome, but the half hour of torrential rain 20mls from the end was not.
Next up Suzy is tackling Tour of the Peaks Saturday 12th May starting in Bakewell Derbyshire. I'll be on Vags MTT duties so will not be riding this one, but currently there are a couple of other Vags riding it with Suzy. If you are not involved in the MTT and fancy a mountain challenge of a different sort contact Suzy directly, or if you would simply like to make a donation to her Just Giving page follow the link posted earlier in the thread.
