HOW TO WHWX2

Had great help for the West Highland Way Double, since I did it quite a few people have asked me how I did it. The only thing I can tell them is that I used only the best kit, the list is as follows:

STATIC LANDS END TO JOHN O'GROATS COMPLETED

Lynne had this brilliant idea to raise money, she has done Lands End To John O'Groats in 4 1/2 days on an exercise bike for the Aurora charity, in the hospital reception. She had a host of people doing it with her, I was the first guinea pig on Monday morning, It was great watching the world go by, and a lot safer than doing the route on our lovely roads. For anyone who may be interested in donating she has a charity giving site going which is: www.charitygiving.co.uk/lynnewhitaker

BIG BOOST FROM EVENORT

Could not believe my eyes when I got the email about a massive donation on the Charity Site from Evenort. Not only did Evenort  cover the costs for fuel, but Craig Mckay from Evenort also came along as part of the support crew, that has got a massive value on its own, but to follow it up with such a generous donation is absolutely breathtaking. A big thank you on behalf of the Aurora from myself to Craig Mckay and all at Evenort, It means such a lot to get great support and makes doing these challenges all the more special......Cheers

EVENORT STEPS UP

Sat with a large steel flange
One of my good friends and long time sponsors has once again confirmed their continued support for the various causes we help by becoming the main sponsor covering costs of my Wades Road Double attempt. I am bowled over by their generosity and hope I can do them justice. Craig is also coming along in support doing some of the support duties. Many Thanks Craig, your a star.  www.evenort.co.uk

NEW SPONSORS NOMAD PRESSURE WASHERS


It is always good to get help with a project, but it is even better when it is with a fantastic bit of kit that will make the job a whole lot easier. The Nomad Pressure Washer is one of those things that is on any self respecting mountain bikers wish list and Gary at Nomad Direct has been kind enough to let us have one of their pressure washers to use for our challenges.   Cheers Gary. www.nomad-direct.co.uk

A PREVIOUS LIFE

Some people know of my need for speed and all things with bars and 2 wheels, but Mountain Bikes are my passion these days, they have helped me back to health after various life threatening motorbike accidents. Some of these photos are from the seventies and early eighties, whoops.........showing my age now!
