Last spring I cycled from the Education Village, Darlington to Vienna (birthplace of Hans Asperger) to raise money to build a sensory playground/garden for the autism unit at the village. Some friends from Devon (Phil and Jenny) were brave enough to join the project as support crew in their mobile home (Myfanwy) and we battled through rotten weather for almost three weeks arriving ahead of schedule on Friday 13th June 2008 having raised just over £10,000. The story of the ride is at
We are now about to begin work on the playground but we still need to raise more funds so I've no doubt I'll be getting on my bike again this year and if you are thinking of putting on an event for charity please consider donating to the sensory garden project.
