On April 13th I will be donning Lycra(!) and setting off from no.10 Downing Street with around 30 other cyclists to raise funds for two charities in memory of a good friend and landlord of our local pub in Chadlington, Oxfordshire, where we will end up on Saturday evening after 120 miles in the saddle.
Mike Willis died in 2010 after a 3-year battle with cancer, so we are proud to help raise funds for Katharine House Hospice and Oxfordshire Association for the Blind. Mike’s daughters Genevieve and Nicola are part of the crowd of former regulars at The Tite Inn and friends taking part.
When he was but a local MP and regular at The Tite Inn, David Cameron did a number of charity rides and agreed to set us off from no.10 if he ever became Prime Minister. True to his word we will be starting the ride there at 09:00 on April 13th.
