Garry McGivern’s bike-ride to Australia-and-beyond Sunday, 24th-June-2012, Mount Vernon to Uhrichsville. 70 miles. I managed to escape this morning without being kidnapped and inducted into some religious cult!
Again there’s nothing to really report today. I watched some of the England v Italy football game this afternoon, and wished I hadn’t bothered! I received an email earlier from one of the two ladies I met in San Francisco, Linda and Eva. Their flying to New York for American Independence day, which is next week, and they wondered if I would be there by then. It’s only about five hundred miles away, so I should be. But could I keep in contact and let them know for definite in a day or so.
That’ll be cool, and it will give me something to aim for. It hadn’t occurred to me that the July fourth celebrations were coming up. But then why would I? Isn’t it a celebration of independence from Great Britain!
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.
