Hi all

I am new to the Rum Ration but a regular to Arrse, this is my first post on your site and I am appealing to you guys to please sponsor me to raise money for a very poignant an worthwhile charity http://www.helpforheroes.org

I have been lucky enough to get a place on the Big Battlefield Bike Ride which is one of the charities official events, you can find out more about this event through the link above and also through my fund raising web page http://www.justgiving.com/paul_woodcock

Please give generously, all donations are gratefully received.

Many thanks

S_R, well done mate and best of luck. One of the RR regulars got blown up in the stan earlier this year and is doing the same bike ride, alot of us will be sponsoring him.

Best of luck.

As I said, all donations gratefully received (no matter how small).

I'm getting shedded with him later mate, I'll get him to look you up. Also when I find my wallet after stumbling through the door last night I'll make a donation.

It's a worthy cause, well done.

Me too pongo

I havn't even got a bike yet, however I have managed to negotiate a very handsome discount on a new bike from my local bike store. The owner is an ex REME CSM, he has given me over 50% off a 2008 Kona Jake cyclocross bike (whatever that is?). In return I am advertising his shop, hence the link in my signature block.

Good to hear from fellow BBBR cyclists, I live in the south near Aldershot, maybe we can all get together for a day on the lash........ er! I mean a training cycle!

Yeh I am buggered too!

I had both of my legs (calves) operated on last xmas, the op didn't work so now I can no longer run or do any kind of high impact sport, so I thought I would do this instead!!

I am not going for any land speed record, I just want to complete it, raise lots of money for charity and have a good laugh too.

Shaggy is there a link to donate for your intrepid journey, I've donated to Shovel_Recce via his link but saved some of my (not so) hard earned cash for you, how do I pay?

C'mon shaggy, post the details so the sponsorship money can start flowing in, there's quite a few on here who'd like to donate.
