Can we beat £225,000 in 2014?

I keep thinking I'm on my post ride depression and then something good happens. Nearly two weeks on and the money is still rolling in. Lots of people who didn't quite get around to sponsoring us before the ride have somehow remembered afterwards. In particular our most senior cyclist Terry Burns has piled on the pounds (in the nicest way) and we got the rather splendid news that Santander, which he also chairs, is matching the first £3500 of his sponsorship. With similar gift matching from Google as well as donations from Channel 4 and Deutsche Bank our running total right now is over £225
,000.



We are already thinking about next year, talking to potential company supporters and signing up the first riders. If we managed this with 30 cyclists imagine what we can do with a few more.
