Duncan completes a gruelling challenge..

Ride for the North Cycle Challenge

Well, I did it…!!!


We had a great time on the event although the weather was horrendous in places, and cycling over moorland in driving rain and low cloud made the challenge even tougher than it was supposed to be.

There were 20 of us who completed it; we got to see some spectacular countryside en route to Scotland over the hills, and routes that you would never normally go through. Morale kept high despite the conditions, and it was good to see some of the work that Barnardo's do.

Julie read out a few stories of some of the Barnardo's children, it really makes you think of life and what some of these young people in care and from abused backgrounds must go through.  We have never experienced it, and it's great to think that we may have done a little bit to help.... so a big Thank You to all who supported.  Well done!

If you havent yet had chance to pledge your support dont worry theres still time to donate.  Click on the link to my Virgin Money Giving page, every little helps!!

If anyone is interested in participating yourself next year or one of the other challenges Barnardo’s organise, contact Julie on Julie@exceedevents.co.uk

Update; Ride For The North


Ride For The North 2012 Challenge

Fantastic news – I’m only £200 away from reaching my target of £1,100!!

On training.... I can report....

I’m diligently doing the training back and forth to the office each day which is about 18-20 miles. The hills are definitely getting easier around North Yorkshire (where there are a few!) so I can recommend this activity to people...makes you feel much more alert and ready for the day doing some exercise, so I am really enjoying it and the better weather helps.  I'm getting ready for the big challenge, and I will be ready!  Don’t think I am quite the "John Bishop of the recruitment world yet" as some have suggested, but its good fun and enjoying trying to do my bit.

A huge thanks to all the people who’ve sponsored & supported me so far.

If you haven’t already, please sponsor me and help towards a great cause!!!

Many thanks,

Macallam takes part in The Ride For The North ! !

     &    Kettlesing Felliscliffe Community Primary School, Harrogate 

In an effort to retain some of my sporting interests ( before I had 3 kids under 6!) ...Having discovered road biking 2 yrs ago, I have been trying to keep some modicum of fitness by cycling the 20 miles a day to and from work.  

I am now taking part in the Ride For The North Challenge - cycling 220miles across tough terrain from Harrogate on the 5th July, through North Yorkshire, up over the moors and across the Scottish Border to the finish line in Edinburgh on 8th July.

This is all for a great Children's Charity, Barnardo's and my local school Kettlesing, so please support me and all your donations will be greatly appreciated.

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can easily sponsor me with the button below. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on Barnardo's behalf where eligible for this.

Many Thanks
