Neil's "Ride the North 2018" for Maggie's Centres

I'm riding for Maggie's so that they can help people with cancer, and to help support Doug a cycling friend – Doug is riding in memory of his daughter Kathy who sadly died this year from cancer. Maggie's were very supportive to Kathy, family and friends during Kathy's illness and continue to support them all.

I have just got a late entry for "Ride the North", it is a 2-day 175 mile cycling challenge at the end of August. It starts at Castle Fraser (west of Aberdeen) and goes to Elgin on the Saturday with 2000m of climbing; on the Sunday it returns to Castle Fraser with 1900m of climbing. 
I will be riding with Doug and we are both riding in support of Maggie’s Centres. 
Please read why we are doing this, any donation large or small is hugely appreciated and allows Maggie's to help thousands of people with cancer. 

Many thanks – 
Neil Hazlehurst
