Cycling the Season

As some people on here know, I'm taking a voluntary severance package from work and taking some time out before trying to find another job.

So I'm going to take a year off work and spend the time combining my two hobbies (Palace and cycling) to raise money for a brilliant charity that supports families with disabled children - Contact a Family (cafamily.org.uk)

Logistically a midweek away game up north might be the killer if you only have 3/4 days to get back South for a home game.

As you say, if we're away at somewhere like Southampton or Bournemouth again on Boxing Day, it's a juggling act regards Christmas when you have a 3 and a 5 year old.

Great original idea though, hope the blogs are an entertaining read.

With the steam train to Southampton, I did wonder if it was possible to do all the seasons away games by a different mode of transport, eg cable car to West Ham, walk to one, the barge to West Brom, ferry across the Mersey, tube, cycle, fly etc

Good luck!!

Well I suppose you could enter the London to Brighton bike ride next year if you had hopes of cycling to Brrighton.

I will provide the TdF motorcycle escort.

And I don't need to think about sponsoring you until the season begins, do I?

Of course not: though any offers of corporate sponsorship would be very gratefully received.

I'm confused.

If you're not cycling until the next season, isn't your bump, rather like the onset of middle age, a little premature?

Will you be taking that countdown mascot (whose name I have forgotten) with you?

You know there will be uproar if you don't.
