Hello Everyone,

I hope no one minds me posting this as I thought it might be of interest to some of you. I am part of a large group of motorcyclists that on the weekend of the 20th/21st of June 2009, will ride from Edinburgh to Belfast, on to Dublin, then back across the water to Cardiff and finish in London at the Ace Cafe, all in under 24 hours. Oddly enough, we’re calling the event The Longest Day Ride 5 Capitals challenge.

We are aiming to raise £5000 in aid of Make A Wish Foundation, a charity that works with children who have life threatening illnesses, granting them what for many, sadly, will be their final wish.

 www.make-a-wish.org.uk   Make A Wish Foundation want to be able to grant 1000 wishes to 1000 special children in 2010. With your help we can help them to achieve this.

You can support us in two main ways.

You can join us on the ride, and raise sponsorship, for which you would be more than welcome, and you can find contact details here:  http://www.xrv.org.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=33983 . Sponsorship forms and flyers can be downloaded from here: www.thelongestday.org

Alternatively you can support us by donating to the justgiving website we have set up here: www.justgiving.com/thelongestday2009 .

Last year we raised in excess of £15,000 for MacMillan Cancer Support, by riding from John O’Groats to Landsend in under 24 hours.

This year the challenge we set ourselves is tougher, but with your help we will be able to make an outstanding success of it and raise that £5000 for those magical wishes to be made real for those wonderful, special children.   

Please contribute anything you can. We are totally self funding, covering all costs of ferries, petrol, accommodation, and food from our own pockets; by donating directly to www.justgiving.com/thelongestday2009 you can be assured your donation goes directly to Make A Wish Foundation.

Thank you for reading this far. If you can help us, I extend the gratitude of Team XRV to you in advance, for helping us to make those wishes come true. 

Be part of something special. Donate today at www.justgiving.com/thelongestday2009

Keep it rubber side down and thank you once again.
