Maggie's Monster Event

I was recently asked to be part of the team shooting a video about Maggies Monster Bike and Hike 2010.

Spaces for competitors are going fast - it's Saturday & Sunday 1st & 2nd May 2010 - Bank Holiday weekend.

Maggie's is a great charity with which I had several dealings while working for the BBC. The staff and volunteers support people with cancer and their families, but do so in a very special way. It's hard to describe here, but they're good, good people.

The Monster Event is a 24 hour fundraising team challenge. You cycle 30 miles then hike either 8, 22, or 43 miles to one of three finish points, labelled Bronze, Silver and Gold. The route goes from Fort William to Inverness, so very much my home territory.

The video below is Part One of last year's event. Part 2 is here.
