Using the bike in the garage and doing my walking I am Virtually aiming to do 100 miles in 50 Days from Wibsey, Bradford to Newcastle Upon Tyne. Once We have got to Newcastle we are then off over to Liverpool!!!                                                       

August 21st – 2nd of September: 22.6 Miles cycled and walked. We’ve made a stop at Temple Newsham. This place is very special because when I had my surgery my Mum and Dad went and walked around the gardens here until they returned to the hospital. They did not know what was happening, they just had to wait and hope I was OK.

Temple Newsham
The sky is blue, there is a red bricked garden wall on the right. A path leads down the middle into the distance, with freshly mowed grass either side.

This image was taken by me at Temple Newsham a few summers ago. It is a lovely place to go for a wander round.

Follow me on @PipsTurning30 to see where we get to on a daily basis.

I’ll give you another update in a week, gives me chance to move up the map.

So here we are 22 days in of 50 days and we are on track. I am currently sitting in the garden and writing you an update on my progress. The last time I gave an update was when we had just stopped Temple Newsham. My brother has been very kindly drawing me some maps to show you all where I have go to virtually. So here’s one for the update. 

Where are we now?

We are just over halfway now between BD6, where we ‘set off from’ and Newcastle, our virtual destination. As off yesterday, the 18th of September we had done 56.51 which means we have 43.49 miles to go.  Check out the map to the left.

I’m currently sat in the garden drinking some pumpkin spice tea and updating this blog. If you are interested in following me on a daily basis, please follow @PipsTurning30 on Twitter and @VisuallyImpairedPip on Instagram. Sharing my story and raising awareness for these two amazing charities, The British Heart Foundation and The Children’s Heart Surgery Fund are very important to me.
