Garry McGivern’s bike-ride to Australia-and-beyond Monday, 11th-June-2012 McCook to Franklin. 98 miles. I think the wind must have blown itself out yesterday. It was very calm to start with this morning. However, it did get up a bit later in the day, but it was behind me. There’s a saying around here; the day the wind stops, everybody will fall over.
It’s been lovely and sunny today, unlike back home. My home town of Felpham is underwater and is flooded. There’s a canoe in my garage if anybody wishes to borrow it.
Don’t forget the main reason behind my ride. I want to raise as much money for cancer research charities as possible. After my wife, Josie, died of breast cancer in 2007, aged only 42. Even the smallest donation helps. You can donate to Cancer Research UK or the Australian National Breast Cancer Foundation. Click on either one to donate. Every little bit helps to rid the world of this cruel disease.
