Elgringo Goes Biking

Howdy Folks, yep you heard that correct! Elgringo goes biking!

Yikes, what have a I let myself in for???  Answers on a postcard please. 🙂

So the big announcement is that I will be riding Stage 4 on the mHealth Grand Tour in September.  Oh that’s September this year (2013) by the way.  Oh by the way that is 500kms in 3 days!!!!

I’m not entirely sure why I have agreed to do this.  Partly to get my ass off the chair, get outside and ultimately lead a slightly healthier lifestyle. I have certainly been motivated after reading accounts of other peoples endeavors, whether that be 5k runs, half marathons, triathlons, ride de cures and Roman Rumbles!  You lot know who you are and whether you know it or not, you have all inspired me to get this far!  Thanks!

So what ticked the boxes?

1. Raise some cash for charities

2. Get fitter, lead a healthier lifestyle

3. Meet/Engage with new people

4. Learn more about health/diabetes/myself/cycling

5. Meeeee time

So the benefits certainly cross over.  Personal yes, great cause yes.

What next I hear you cry!  Well it’s simple really……

All you have to do is head on over to the fundraising page, share a pound, euro, dollar, yen with me and share it around all the good folk you know.  You will receive loads of love back at ya!  I give great hugz n cuddles!

Fundraising Page:- https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/4WhQ3?

If you want to track my training I use Runkeeper at the mo – http://runkeeper.com/user/elgringospain/

Please please please give what you can..  I know more than anybody that things are tight, but if you have a couple of bucks to spare, it will go a long way.  Please please share!  That does not cost a penny and that too can go an awfully long way too..


Thank you!

    300 miles in three days? You’re going to need good, padded shorts!

    Good luck Mike. You do realise how far 300 miles is don’t you? That’s an awful long way 😉

      Thank you Dave, very much realised now! Bugger! As Mike K mentioned, I should have chosen somewhere like Holland! 🙂

    Yay for you, Mike! Put your mind to it, and you can do this. I learned a lot from the TeamWILD group for my big ride last year.
