In about 6 weeks I am doing a Charity ride for Prostate Cancer. It is the fun ride at the London leg of the Tour of Britain and I will be doing two laps of the 10km lap that the race will be on.
Now they have asked for "Fancy Dress" And I have run a few ideas through my head and rejected most of them. I have an idea and it will take a few weeks to see if I can manufacture it but the idea is
Do it on the Tandem as a solo rider with me dressed as some wimp of a "Super hero". Then on the Rear seat post have a BIG "C" and a placard saying- "You Don't have to be Superman to put Cancer Behind you"
This Would be fine- except for Crossswinds. And as this is running alongside the River Thames- that could be a problem.
Providing I can get the materials- The building would not be a problem and I am thinking of manufacturing it in 6mm ply board and Sensible strenthening. Should weigh somewhere in the region of about 20lbs so weight will not be excessive. Might even be able to get a "Professional" job done on the sign writing so it should look good.
But I want a choice of ideas before I start building. As an ex Prostate Cancer recoverer- I would like to keep it in line with the sponsorship but
Any one got anf tips for building- or even a better alternative for the Fancy Dress.?
