In Training for the Dallaglio Cycle Slam
As I was taking photographs of the Wimbledon Common windmill, these intrepid fundraisers stopped their training, and asked whether I would take some photographs of them.

Despite the snow, they were getting in the training miles for the forth-coming Dallaglio Cycle Slam:

"So in February Lawrence, alongside a bunch of celebrity mates and about 200 brave and generous people like you, will be cycling to all of the 6 Nations stadia starting in Rome then onto Paris, Twickenham, Cardiff, Dublin and finishing in Edinburgh on 13th March... the target, to raise £1 million for charity. Thatís 24 days in the saddle and over 2,800 kilometres and more importantly... in the middle of winter - otherwise known as utter madness."

Whilst I declined the invitation to join them on the ride, I said that I would happily post a photograph on this site. All publicity is good, and how could I refuse, for such a good cause?
