A Charity Challenge!

dbyhundred is supporting Hope and Aid Direct (www.hopeandaiddirect.org.uk) this month. David Overton

The other half of my team!

will take part in a gruelling 66 mile mountain biking challenge across the Solent. The Solent Challenge will take in breath-taking views, 6 ferry rides, the trails of the New Forest and the Isle of Wight, two of our major port cities (Portsmouth and Southampton) and will be an excellent test of the prototype SplahMap! Er, it also promises to be exhausting! Please give what you can for an incredibly worthy cause for a region of Europe I have be

en able to visit and respect during my recent contracts.

Giving is easy at http://www.bmycharity.com/dbyhundred.  Thank

you for your kindness 😉

  1. @easygeocloud @dbyhundred Training continues. A new route from Southamptons Queen Elizabeth II dock to Chandlers’ Ford http://j.mp/K99IdG . A beautiful ride on a Summers day. Very overgrown and singers and brambles a-plenty. And not necessarily designated bridle path all the way ;-). My wound from last weeks ride was opened again; My SplashMap not only found me the route, but acted as a gater and bandage… It outshone my GPS… as you can see the map finishes 4 miles before Chandlers’ Ford… batteries ran out ;-).

  2. @dbyhundred @newforce@solentchallenge training found me deep in a marsh in Lordswood! Afraid I cannot share route as iPhone played-up ;-(

  3. An easier ride this time. Plagued with flat tyres and my struggle with the new Cycle Meter App upgrade for the iPhone. Still, I’ve captured the route for you. It’s a good one 😉 http://j.mp/MY4i0A

  4. Finished now! An excellently organised event. Definately could have been more off-roady, but certainly unusual and fund and very friendly! Raised money for Hope and Aid Direct and am now recovering after averaging 12 mph over the 66 miles on the mountain bike. The training was worth it! Thanks to all my sponsors.
