Right well I’m just about sorted for my cycle from Hampton Court to Brighton tomorrow.

Route planned, protein bars packed, padded shorts and base layer sorted, furry monkey suit ironed….

I even have a little mascot for the ride:

Having now seen the route (thanks to the wonders of google street view) I am now a little scared!  It’s a long old way with a really really big old hill at the end! but if I keep peddling I’m sure I’ll be ok!

I am setting off from the Pavilion Club carpark in East Molesey at 11:15am tomorrow morning so if anyone wants to come and wave me off (and verify that I’m in the monkey suit!) then you’d be more than welcome.

I was hoping to use an iphone app to allow people to live track my progress but annoyingly the live tracking feature of the app is down at the moment! I will be tracking my progress though if the battery holds out so I can upload a route map afterwards 🙂

A massive thank you to everyone who has sponsored me so far – I’m so touched by everyone’s generosity – thank you 🙂

There’s still time to sponsor me if you want to at www.nancypriston.com/how-you-can-help/

Wish me luck!

So there’s only a week to go before my London – Brighton Cycle to raise funds to help save the Buton Macaque…

Thank you so much to everyone who has already sponsored me. I’m pleased to say that I have raised over £250 now so I will definitely be doing the 60 mile cycle in my furry monkey suit! Eek! 🙂

There’s still time to sponsor me if you haven’t yet and to help me reach my total goal of £1500.

For more info on the project, how the money will be used and to sponsor me check here.

The forecast is for rain on 7th April so I will be one very soggy monkey! Not sure I’ll be able to ride with an umbrella…..

If I raise more than £250 I promise to do the cycle in my furry monkey outfit! (eek!) 🙂
