Ashley's North 2 South Challenge
I have decided to join over 50 riders from all across England and cycle the length of Israel from the very top (Kyriat Shmona) to the very bottom (Eilat) – that’s over 700km in just 5 days!
We will ride in sizzling temperatures, climb thousands of meters and navigate around crazy Israeli drivers. Although it certainly will be a nice change of scenery from the pharmacy business, it will not be a joy ride and I will need to invest hours of training in order to complete this mammoth task. I started training back in September for this massive endurance challenge. I am now training 4 times a week to get in shape and more importantly to get into lycra!
We are riding to raise much needed funds for the UJIA supported Carmiel Children’s Village, home to over 200 children orphaned or court ordered to leave their families. We will be refurbishing one of the family homes in memory of Darren Walshaw z”l. The ride will also support A Smile for Orly, a Manchester based charity in memory of Orly Feddy z”l which provides services and support to local children’s activities.
I have funded the whole trip myself so every penny I raise goes direct to the charities.
I am aiming to raise £5,000 and would very much appreciate your support.
