I've wanted to complete the 271 mile Trafalgar Way from Pendennis Point in Falmouth to the Admiralty in London since the 200th anniversary of Trafalgar in 2005...
And so, 12 years later, here we are!
I am the Queen of Procrastination!
The D of E Challenge 2017
Now it's your chance to push yourself out of your comfort zone and raise some money for the DofE Charity at the same time by getting involved with theD of E Challenge!
Everyone can take part, there's no age or ability limit, and the options are endless!
You can enter solo or as part of a team!
People talking about the D of E Challenge at Buckingham Palace this week at the Gold Awards.
I met some truly inspiring people and I know first hand, as a Silver Award holder, how it can change lives.
If I can help fundraise to make the Award more widely available to young people who will reap the benefits, then I have to get involved.
So, this morning I registered!
My challenge? I'll be cycling the route taken by Lieutenant Lapenotière from HMS Pickle, taking news of victory at Trafalgar and of Nelson's death.
I'll be doing this over the first 4 weekends in October (so I don't need to take days off of work) and finishing at Nelson's Column on Saturday 21st October - Trafalgar Day.
Lapenotière's journey from Pendennis Point to the Admiralty was about 271 miles, took him 37 hours and 21 stops to change horses on the way!
Cycling is not my sport, I've never been one of those people who love it, it's just how I get the few miles to and from work!
So this will be a challenge in itself!
Want your own challenge?
Head over to the D of E Challenge website - here - and get registered!
It can be anything from skydiving, to learning a new skill, to climbing a mountain

Now, where did I put my lycra..?
