Tour de Ed

Those of you who attended this year's Travolution Summit will undoubtedly remember Comtec's product director Ed Whiting thrashing around Second Life on his bike, wreaking havoc with the locals.

Of course, Whiting is a keen cyclist in real life too and deserves a round of applause for completing the five-day, Race Against Time charity bike ride from Land's End to John O'Groats.

Whiting completed the 874 mile stretch yesterday, raising thousands of pounds for HIV/AIDS work in South Africa, particularly work with orphans and vulnerable children.

Well done, Ed!

You can find out more about the Race Against Time charity and trace Whiting's experiences by logging onto his personal blog, which he updated regularly along the way via his mobile phone --no surprise there.

I cycled John O'Groats to Lands End once. It is quite a long way actually! (and it took me 18 days)

Good job Ed.
