We are pleased to say we are ready to go! Yesterday was a sunny day and enabled us to get the two support vehicles packed in the dry. The charity logos are on the vehicles and clearly displayed on the crew kit we are all wearing so this looks really smart, giving us a real team identity. We are both feeling excited about the event. The months of work to train for it will all pay off once we start on Sunday. We are quietly working away at getting ourselves into the ‘zone’ with our focus on what lies ahead. It is a massive challenge so we need to break this down into manageable section in our minds. It will be easier to maintain motivation with lots of short goals to think about during the race rather than 5 days of cycling with less than 15 hours of sleep. We will be putting regular news updates and photos onto www.beechboys.co.uk There is also a link from the site to the real time tracking of where we are in the race, showing current cycling speed and distance covered. Its all about doing the best we can for the 4 charities we are supporting. We are praying it will make a positive contribution to the work of Links International, both through publicity for Links International and some useful funds raised to assist the important work that you do.
