Hi all, i would like as much input as possible with this.
for spring/summer 2008 i am planning a 'charity two day motorbike endurance tour of Wales'. there will be me, and so far i know two others who want to join me. so if you are a biker...fancy it?
i live in south wales and haven't really been to many other parts. so, my first question is: where in wales is nice? any towns with funny names? what about good twisty roads? awesome views? places to avoid would be nice to know too.
my original idea was just a ride around wales over two days, but after thinking about it more, if i am going to ride why do it for the only reason of...because i want to, why not do it for charity and make it a more worth while tour? so it was decided, it should be a charity tour. raise money for the trip (fuel costs) and all other money will go to an agreed charity.
so my second question is, which charity should that be?
my cousin is currently supporting 'y bont' which is a school near by for special needs i think (not sure on that though). i considered doing the tour for the same school, becuase her son goes there and she supports it and her husband is one of the 2 others who want to come - she cant say no if its for that charity can she?! Smiley
but, what other charity to you all think is a good to charity to support?
thanks for reading this, and if i can get the ball rolling with this, contact the charity, i will plan a route, start finding ways to advertise the event, and possibly even make a website for it so it will all look official and show how much we have raised, planned dates and places to visit etc etc. i'd like to have the whole of wales to support me on this, with bikers joining the tour as we go, and dropping off after a certain times if they wish.
if you'd be interested in riding, helping plan, donating, any thing. please reply and we can all help to raise money for charity.
