I am pleased to welcome you to my personal blog, which I started in March 2009. I first became interested in blogging about five years ago, using old "blogger.com", which was cumbersome to use and I never mastered. About a year ago I discovered that Google had bought "blogger.com" and had revised it considerably, making it fun to use, so much so that I have devised at least 15 blogs on various subjects and frequently add posts and Gadgets to them.

Among the interesting blogs from SolarAid is this account of an around-the-world bicycle trip by three young people trying to raise funds for SolarAid.

Today, on EU Solar Day (15 May 2009), a team of three solar campaigners left London's City Hall to cycle around the world powered by the sun!

Susie Wheeldon, Jamie Vining and Iain Henderson make up The Solar Cycle Diaries. An around-the-world cycle trip aimed at raising awareness of solar as a solution to climate change, the world's energy needs and the fight against poverty. The team will be raising money for SolarAid and their target is an impressive £30,000.

Thin film solar panels on their panniers will power the team's communications equipment enabling them to update their blogs and upload photos regularly.

There are many ways you can follow the team's progress. Read their blog, following them on Twitter or read SolarAid's updates right here on latest news.

Please support them on their massive venture and support SolarAid at the same time.

The SolarAid team wish the intrepid travellers the very best of luck
