DEMAND ride - 28 June 2008

I said that I'd mention a new challenge and fundraising ride:

"Join us for the first ever DEMAND Yorkshire Dales 100km/50km Challenge

The ride - 100km or 50km over the Yorkshire Dales, starting and finishing at Skipton, in aid of DEMAND (Design and Manufacture for Disability).

Date - Saturday June 28th 2008
Start - 7.30 -8.30 for 100km,
8.30 - 9.30 for 50km
Refreshments available to buy along route and at Finish

To many of you 100km or 50km isn't much of a challenge, but the ride isn't about that - it's about raising money for those who face huge challenges every day through disability. Your sponsorship money helps DEMAND to help more disabled people so please dig deep! Enter online at

There are more than 10 million disabled people in the UK. DEMAND (Design and Manufacture for Disability) exists to design and manufacture equipment for them where no "off the shelf" solution is available. Whether DEMAND are asked to improve quality of everyday living or provide opportunities that would otherwise be unavailable, they can only do as much as your donations allow. DEMAND’s clients face tough challenges every single day of their lives. Please help DEMAND to help them by challenging yourself to take part in this new, exciting event.”

Hope that’s all ok. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this ride works out. All advice and comments gratefully appreciated!
