Barrie’s cycling 300

for Cancer Research

This September, before the end of the month, I will attempt to complete 300 miles on my bike for Cancer Research UK from Jericho in Oxford.

I’m doing Cycle 300 September 2018. In memory of Thomas Hardy, novelist, poet and cyclist

My main effort will be concentrating on making a journey to the Eiffel Tower in Paris beginning at St Pancras in London on September 16th.

Did you know?

The origins of Nelson Street?

Nelson Street takes its name from a local pub, the Lord Nelson, subsequently renamed Carpenters’ Arms—which has since been converted to housing.

Who has a car?

According to the 2001 Census, only 47% of Jericho households have a car compared with 67% for Oxford as a whole.
