Looking for accommodation on Tuesday night the 30 th May #RideforReuben.

I am helping my stepdaughter starting next Friday in her task to cycle from the John Ratcliffe Hospital in Oxford to John O’ Groasts over 750 miles. I fly down next week and I will be the support driver following them the whole way, it will be an adventure and I hope to meet a few pals on route. We have had to make a few modifications  to our route that I will publish later but are struggling for accommodation in Braemar on the Tuesday night 30 th May. I am looking for 2 rooms for 3 people, can you help?

If you have any contacts/ advice please contact me? I will be very grateful for any help.



Hello and thank you for looking at my page. At the end of May I’m  going to cycle approx 750 miles, as fast as I can, to #RideforReuben who is the 3 year old superhero son of my very close friends. Reuben was diagnosed with aggressive neuroblastoma just days before his 3rd birthday. His wonderful parents need to raise the staggering amount of £250k to get him overseas treatment to fight this rare cancer and carry on his childhood and their family life.

I’m a mum to two young children and I’m not super fit, or a super cyclist. This challenge to ride from the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford, all the way through England to the very tip of Northern Scotland at John O Groats will push me beyond anything I have done before, or even thought of.

But Reuben’s fight is bigger and harder, and he is just little.

My ride will be a maximum of 7 days of punishing physical and mental pain, but little Reuben and his parents Jess and Kul are enduring a far far longer and harder trial. And they’re doing it with bravery and compassion and phenomenal strength. I can ride a few hundred miles to help them save their beautiful son, and I hope you can dig as deep as you can to donate to their fund.

This route usually is tackled over a period of 9- 14 days, but with childcare considerations I don’t have that much time. I will camp to increase flexibility so can go further on some days and hopefully complete even faster than my 7 day deadline. I will have support along the way and will plan ahead to stop for donations at specific points to share #ReubensFight.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul and I will smash this challenge to thank you all for your donations.



Thanks !
