Off tomorrow afternoon to do a Scottish Coast 2 Coast charity ride from Inverness to Ardnamurchan (try saying that in a hurry if you're not Scottish). Its to raise money for The Russell Hogg Trust, a charity set up in memory of Russell Hogg who tragically died in his mid forties from cancer. Russell was a very talented badminton player, in fact Scotland's 2nd most capped badminton player and a great character as well.The trust is to support both young badminton players and disabled athletes of all ages.
The ride is over 4 days averaging roughly 40 miles a day and while to several of us it should be relatively easy, quite a few of the riders are predominately badminton players and not mountain bikers, it's going to be very interesting and a whole lot of fun.
For anyone who might be interested in this charity the details are:-
