Simply Giving – Istanbul to Amsterdam

John & LauraJohn & Laura volunteered at New Life this year, and because of their belief in New Life’s approach to recovery, decided to raise funds by asking for sponsorship of their cycling journey from Istanbul to Amsterdam, the funds of which will go to New Life Foundation.

An extract from John and Laura’s blog……

Day 1 to 4 – Istanbul to Vize (Turkey). 190km

“The bicycle tour has begun, and what a start.  Leaving Istanbul at 6.30am on Tuesday with our saddle bags packed , we began our long ride home and it’s been a great first few days.   It’s been a loooooong time (over a year!) since either of us have done any exercise so we’ve been easing in gently with about 50km a day.  I’d convinced myself we’d somehow manage to avoid hills along the way but unfortunately was proven wrong – thank goodness for gears.  That said, we’ve enjoyed every minute & it’s been beautiful scenery the whole way.”
