My girlfriend and I are cycling from the Great Wall of China to Tiananmen Square in October 2006. You may think that is miles ahead but we need to have raised and collected ?5500 before then. All sposorship goes to the mind organization, a charity that deals with people who have mental illnesses and problems.
If all members sponsor us at least ?1, then i am sure that the target will be reached in no time at all. If you can more more then that would be even more appreciated.

Samantha and I are embarking on a challenge of a lifetime. We shall be cycling 400km along side the Great Wall of China to Tiananmen Square in only 5 days. There shall be a group of around 50 of us setting off to complete this adventure. The rough terrain is bound to take its toll on both off us as its all off road, up and down hills, bouncing off the pot holes and knowing falling off a few times.
Funds raised by the China Bike Ride will help leading mental health charity Mind support the 1 in 4 of us who will experience mental distress each year.
I am sure the journey will be a culture eye opener for us but the bottom line is that the ones who benefit the most are those who turn to Mind each year.
