During an idle conversation with my very good friend Robin Seymour, he casually mentions that on his ‘bucket list’ is a gentle ride on the Harley to the top of Norway to visit Nordkapp, making the most of the 24 hour daylight during summer. This seemed like a good idea, so inspired, I sign up to the trip along with some other Harley riders.
After committing Robin tells me it’s not the gentle ‘bimble’ I am imagining, but a full on ‘endurance ride’ covering 5000 miles in only ten days (ask any motorcyclist and they would probably tell you that’s quite a ride.) I comfort myself positioning it in my head as an ‘epic adventure’ and the chance to hopefully raise a few pounds for a worthwhile cause.

Sun Awareness Flyer
A new initiative is launching to ‘Blow the Whistle on Sunburn’; supported by Julia Bradbury and partnered with the Association for Physical Education (afPE), sports coach UK and the Youth Sports Trust
Going live on the 7th May, www.oksunsafetycode.com is a FREE resource bank designed to ensure that children who attend organised outdoor activities stay safe in the sun. The initiative was devised and is funded a small national charity, Myfanwy Townsend Melanoma Research Fund, after recognising that no such guidelines exist for those who work outdoors with children.
