Toon man plans route to success.

Toon man plans route to success.

Imagine the scene...

The season is underway and our quick return to the dizzy heights of the Premiership has so far surprised us with a 100% record in our first five games, exceeding all of our wildest dreams. Next up is the rough and tumble of Stoke City, but with an influx of fleet-footed and sublimely talented attacking players, we`ve become the Spain of the British game and roll them over with consummate ease.

OK, so that`s not likely to happen. Which is why it`s easier to bear the thought that I won`t be there. So where will I be instead, you ask?

On the 26th September at 4.10pm, I`ll be approximately somewhere between Hull and Boston. Hopefully, a lot closer to Boston. Not with any disrespect to Hull, although that would probably be fair. Or because Boston is a particularly attractive location.

No, the reason I`d like to be closer to Boston at the exact time on the 26th September, is that it`s the third stop-off point on my mammoth charity bike ride from Newcastle to London. Riding for Breast Cancer Campaign with friends, colleagues, mentalists from work, I`ll be covering roughly 450 miles in 5 days, starting from our Newcastle office and finishing at our London office.

We`re aiming to raise £20,000 for charity, which seems like a lot but with two months to go, we`re making a determined effort to push on to the target and hope everyone can give it some thought.

We`re hoping for some corporate sponsorship, so if anyone is an a position to help, the group is prepared to mention company names in press releases, on the website and via social networking. Hell, we`ll even sweat in some t-shirts. But sponsorship from individuals is what can really make the difference and certainly means more to those of us completing the ride.

We`re currently setting up a website, so that anyone can track the progress (or lack of it) that we make on a daily basis. In the meantime, we have a JustGiving site set up -

Even if you just consider what you can do to help, it`ll be appreciated. And those who can do, please dig deep.

Cheers
