This summer, we are organising a ride for Sky Sports News presenters Rob Wotton and Julian Waters. Rob and Julian are riding from St James Park, Exeter to St James' Park, Newcastle, raising funds for Retts Syndrome via curefordylan.
Dylan, one of their producer's daughter, suffers from Retts which means she is trapped insider her own body without the ability to communicate. She can't talk, walks, use her hands or feed herself. She is only 2 years old.
Recent research has however shown that it is possible to reverse this neurological disorder but the only reason that the research has not been developed further is money. MONEY! There is therefore a chance for thousands of little girls, who it was assumed would suffer for their entire lives, to be cured. That's why, we are organising Julian's and Rob's gruelling week long ride from one end of the country to the other - don't worry though, we aren't taking a single penny for our efforts as we want everything raised to go directly to this amazing charity.
Each day we will be sharing video on Facebook and Twitter and hopefully Sky Sports News will be reporting on the ride so please follow us and share our links. Join Love Velo, Rob and Julian without ever leaving your computer as we go on an epic 400 mile adventure. And who knows, video of Rob and Julian in an ice bath or a couple of celebs in lycra might be your reward for following our journey.
You can donate by going on to justgiving or by texting 70070 stating the code: STJA99 and the amount.
