Track my Ton!

So all the talk is over. On Sunday I take on the Ton.

I feel ready.....ish. I'm sure I'll make it to the end (barring mechanical failure or heart attack!) but I'm not sure if I will take 6 hours (aye right) or 10. Someone could always run a book on my time! I'd be putting your money on the longer times

Many, many thanks to everyone who has sponsored me. At the time of writing this I have raised £540 for my mums hospice and £240 for Action Medical Research. Very impressive with some money still to come in (have you sponsored me yet?!).

To spice things up a little I will be using a GPS tracker to record my ride, and with a little bit of interwebby magic, you can follow me live below! From about 7:30am onwards on Sunday (21st June) you can follow my position and speed on the ton course. It starts from Stirling and ends in Stirling.

So feel free to leave comments here encouraging me to go faster, get to the end, to try and retake the lead from the snail that has gone past me etc.

Wish me luck!

P.S. The track point at time of writing is not at my house. Too many bus drivers/taxi drivers etc would be interested in that information....

  1. Good luck, Dave - I'm sure you'll do yourself & your Mum proud. Fingers crossed fo a glorious day of weather (looking good so far !).

    No way I'll be able to keep up with you any more on PfS after this :-)

  2. I will be watching and shouting at the screen everytime the dot stops!

    Best of luck!
