Inspiration of the Month

This month is all about Father’s Day (but I would say that!).  Zoe has also found some fantastic ideas to fit in with Child Safety Week and British Mud Week among others.  You can find all that and a lot more in her blog, here.

How far is it from Glasgow to London? It turns out it’s quite far – 500 miles if you take the cycling option (which is the one I chose).  I’ll let you know just how far that feels next month, after (if) I finish my Ovarian Cancer Action challenge.

All the practice I’ve been doing has meant my two boys (5 and 3) have got really into the idea of cycling and it has made me realise just how much cotton wool children get wrapped in these days.  Just because cycling is fast and children are bound to fall off, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get the pleasure of the wind in their faces.

The British Medical Association claim the health benefits of cycling outweigh risks by 20:1 – so let’s get those children outside and riding!
