We split the course into two sections, the first being 2.55 miles to my home for lunch and a rest

The second stage was tricky riding but I made it to the end, tred but happy to complete it

After 1 hour 40 minutes of cycling, I finally completed the challenge

We have raised 220 for the next Gofu Juu project

Well done Oliver, this is a truly great achievement. A few weeks after the cycle ride Esther, William and Lucy arrived from Gofu Juu and we were able to tell them all about the ride in one of our assemblies. Esther told us that the school is trying to feed some of the orphans in Year 7 with a meal of rice and beans each day and the money Oliver raised will help with this project.
