I am cycling to raise money for the fantastic UK based chaity Macmillan Cancer Support. Big thanks to everyone who has sponsored me so far! Justgiving is a quick, easy and secure way to donate online. See my other fundraising page, specific to the Macmillan organized part of the trip

Flying tomorrow!

Woohoo!... flying tomorrow (or today as its half midnight!) Bike's packed in a very makeshift but hopefully secure way (bike box Dan haad kindly picked up from Apex was too small so did a Blue Peter job on it with Fish and Dan!)

The next two weeks I'll be out of contact, doing the following route with Macmillan:
Day 1(6th Feb): Fly London-Panama City (Panama)
Day 2: Bus Panama City-La Fortuna Forest Reserve
Day 3: La Fortuna Forest Reserve-Almirante Approx 85km
Day 4: Almirante-Cahuita (Costa Rica)102km
Day 5: Cahuita-Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui 75km
Day 6: Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui-La Fortuna Approx 100km
Day 7: La Fortuna-Ranch Camp 82km
Day 8: Ranch Camp-Santa Cecilia Approx 85km
Day 9: Santa Cecilia-La Virgen (Nicaragua)Approx 75km
Day 10: La Virgen-Granada Approx 75km

In Granada the plan is to stop for a few days and plot out a clearer route for setting off on my own to Managua and the school that I'm hoping to visit there. Will be checking mail, washing stinky clothes and getting a pay as you go chip there for the old school nokia I've managed to get a hold of...probably having a last minute panic about all the pannier weight!

Thanks again to everyone for all your support!

Big love
