    To all LFC fans, and all football fans

    On April 13th, 14th and 15th 2012, I'll be riding my bike 260 miles from my home in Bungay, Suffolk to Anfield, via Hillsborough.

    I'm riding in the memory of the 96 Liverpool FC fans who died in the Hillsborough stadium disaster, and to raise money for the Hillsborough Justice Campaign (HJC), Hillsborough Family Support Group (HFSG), and the Jamie Carragher 23 Foundation.

    More details about the event, and why I'm doing it can be found on the official page here:

    http://www.rideforthe96.co.uk/about-...de-for-the-96/

    The full route over the 3 days can be found here:

    http://www.rideforthe96.co.uk/2012-route/

    With only a few short weeks remaining before the ride, I'm desperately seeking help in getting sponsors and spreading the word about the ride.

    Please:

    - Like the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/rideforthe96
    - Follow me on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/subvertbeats
    - Consider sponsoring me: http://www.justgiving.com/rideforhillsborough

    Anything you can do to help raise awareness or help get closer to the sponsorhip target would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, YNWA!

    Ben (subsy@rideforthe96.co.uk)


    PS: If you're not aware already, also check out the stellar effort from a few lads who are organising an epic run for the same reasons: http://www.hillsborough-anfieldrun.co.uk

    Cheers hoops. Went past 500 sponsorship yesterday, but still 1500 short of the target. Hoping it all comes togather.
    All I can do is keep spreading the word and make sure I'm ready.
    Come a long way in 6 months from being pretty unfit and cycling no more than 30 miles in any one day to where I am now. Been a long old slog, but will be worth every single ache and pain.

    Hi mate

    Around 1:30 outside the HJC shop / kop

    Enough time to get changed and walk down to lay some flowers at the memorial before heading to the service.

    Will you be there?

    Mate, you should have introduced yourself, would have been great to put face to the name.

    Next time I'm up for a match I'll let you know and see if you're about.

    Thanks for coming to support, it meant a lot to have so many people there at the end

    PS: Legs are aching badly - the hills in the peaks early on day 3 followed by having to go like a train to get there in time really took it out of them. 2 days off work though now so looking forward to a pint or few later

    Sorry mate, I shook your hand whilst you were putting stuff in the car and you had people all around you. Plus you'd just cycled all that way so didnt want to crowd you (if that makes sense)

    Definately let me know when your at the next match and I'll buy you a pint or 3! You've got me on twtter so just send me a message

    I know I've said it a few times already but top top effort mate, you've done LFC and the 96 proud!

    I know you're looking to do it again next year, and if I can get involved I will, but in the nicest possible way I hope we dont have to as that will mean the truth and justice will have been served by then!

    YNWA (or over the last few days YNRA)
