2nd day in on my charity bike ride for Brain Tumour Research - Taylan's Project💚 from London to Amsterdam.

Ist day from Crystal Palace 6.45am leave😴...

We cycled down to Dover & then took the ferry to Calais.

We then rode to our Hotel in the dark in convoy.

A long hard day in the saddle but worth every mile.

Day 2 after a good breakfast we rode a flat route north through Dunkirk up to Bruges.

Very hot & a slight head wind but also a great day in the saddle.

Day 3 & 4 still to do but looking forward to the pain.🚴.

I'll post more about the route from Bruges, Breda & Amsterdam in the next few days.

Please if you can spare even a small donation it will be greatly received.

Thank you again

Day 3 on my charity bike ride from Crystal Palace to Amsterdam for Brain Tumour Research - Taylans Project 🚴💚

We rode from Bruges to Breda with a short ferry ride at Bresken's.

We just managed 100 miles today & it was so hot☀️33 most of the afternoon.

Pan flat & very fast even had a race wit a Dutch cyclist near the end...

Managed to break the 30mph on the flat & yes I did drop him 😂😂...

Tomorrow is the final push into museum square in Amsterdam.

A short stage of less than 90 miles.

It's not too late to sponsor me if you haven't already...

It's for such a great cause.

Please take time to read the post & there is a just giving page.

Ian Maskell is cycling from London to Amsterdam (approximately 370 miles) from 31st May to 3rd June 2017.Taylan and Will.jpg

His page has been set up by his son Will who was very good friends with Taylan.

Please visit his fundraising page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Ian-MASKELL2  to read all about why his dad Ian is taking on the challenge and please donate what you can.  Ian has paid for the cost of the trip himself, so every penny raised goes towards vital research.  

Good luck Ian and thank you!  Thank you also to Will for being such a great friend x
