Pedal the Atlantic

Not really narrow boat territory, this, but another part of my life is spent organising The Shelford Feast, our local village event. One person who has helped us is Justin Coleman, who supplies comedians for our stand-up night.
Now he has a whacky plan to pedal across the Atlantic. Yes, pedal.
This December, he attempts to pedal 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean – all in the name of charity.

Justin, along with pedal partner James Mouland, will set off from Puerto Mogan in the Canaries and pedal across the ocean to reach Port St Charles in Barbados, attempting to raise £50,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society. If successful, they will become the oldest pair to pedal the ocean.

Justin is looking for corporate and individual sponsorship for the voyage. If you'd like to support him, please visit www.atlantic2012.co.uk where you'll find details of how to donate or download a sponsorship pack. Alternatively, you can call him on 01455 840 102.

This is what he's pedalling (and it's the boat in front not the cruiser):
 Best of luck and I hope he doesn't meet any icebergs.
