Ray Harris is taking part in a 500+ mile bike ride around Cyprus in October, raising funds for Voluntary Action Epping Forest.

Hi my name is Ray Harris and I am going to do a Charity Bike Ride for Voluntary Action Epping Forest www.vaef.org.uk in Cyprus on October 2019 . I will be riding with a friend along the coast road that will start in Paphos town centre, the route will take us through towns and villages. The distance covered will be well over 500 miles as we will also have to go inland into very high hills that will have historical places that I will record and photograph for A Vision of Britain CIC. projects include multimedia, history and nature. website : www.avisionofbritain.org
This is my first bike ride in another country and will be very enduring and exciting at the same time. I will be camping on the journey that could take us 7 to 8 weeks as we will be carrying large rucksacks which will be loaded with water, food and camping equipment including a tent which will be needed to camp outside and campsites we can find on the way. It is also important to take bike equipment incase of any trouble with the bikes. I also hope that the weather is not to hot but not bad weather as this will slow our performance and we will have to wash in the sea if we cannot find any facilities on route. The hardest part about camping is getting a good night sleep which is sometimes hard laying on hard ground and next day jumping on the bike to the next destination.
The Charity that I am raising finance for is Voluntary Action Epping Forest which provides activities and volunteers for the community. The projects include garden projects such as allotments and conservation, senior citizens projects which include a service and outings and also finding volunteers in the community including special needs that give their time and participate in the projects mentioned. Charities like this always need financial support for all the good work they do, there have been many people who have benefited from the projects created and organised by V.A.E.F who have remained volunteers for many years.
I hope that people / businesses will sponsor me on this Charity Bike Ride as Voluntary Action Epping Forest is a unique Charity which help many people to achieve goals in their life working with other people or participating in projects provided by V.A.E.F. My target figure is very high £10,000.00 which if reached this money could be distributed between the broad range of different services organised by V.A.E.F. www.vaef.org.uk
Please feel free to use this info and pass on to others the more people know the more people will sponsor me .
