Please support my Ambitious Challenge!

I did it!! I took part in the Rapha Ambitious Manchester to London bike ride to celebrate my big birthday. Thanks so much for sponsoring my 350k/220m ride for Ambitious about Autism. I completed the Manchester to London cycle in the early hours of Monday having left Manchester at 5am on Sunday. It was a truly epic ride, leaving Manchester into the Pennines, whizzing down the Monsal trail, taking in beautiful villages and lanes until I reached the pitch dark lanes of Hertfordshire and soon enough rolled into London. Thanks again for your sponsorship, it spured me on in the months of training, during the ride and when nearly loosing the will to live over last minute tyre issues. 

Ambitious about Autism want to help create a world where autistic children and young people are heard, included and supported. 

Just £20 can contribute towards a family support worker for an autistic young person. This could allow Ambitious about Autism to provide telephone support to a family in crisis on matters such as welfare, health, and legal support.

Please donate to support my challenge. Thank you so much!

Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag und viel Spaß bei der Challenge. Wobei, ist Spaß überhaupt der richtige Ausdruck? Bei 220 Meilen wohl eher mentale und physische Stärke! Herzliche Grüße, Pauline und Madsen
