  1. It started out as an idea to leave the motor at home when I got my bus pass. The Canary would have been proud of me looking after the auld wallet! Then one thing led to another, I parked the bus pass and started commute cycling full time. That was five years and 44,444 miles ago. That was to support Solving Kids Cancer in the UK: they fund the families of kids who can't get treatment in the UK. Then the story reached Adelaide, and in particular got onto the radar of Neuroblastoma Australia. They emailed me out of the blue, about 18 months ago, and asked if I'd do a bike ride for them. That ride, totally self funded between the mad ginger Gabby and myself, was Ride2Cure: 2222km in 15 days. The book, which I didn't even start writing until I got home a month ago, is the inside story of the whole adventure, starting right back in 2013. There's a fair chunk of Caley Thistle content because the Highland March/Bike played such a prominent role. I plan on continuing to support Neuroblastoma Australia because all of their fundraising goes to laboratory research at the Children's Cancer Institute in Sydney. Only through research will the boffins be able to stop the conveyor belt of kids dying. All proceeds from the book will go to Neuroblastoma Australia.
