For MK Dons fan and keen cyclist Adam Faiers, opening his wallet to support disabled football teams wasn't enough. After making a bet on Twitter, Adam promised to cycle to every away game of the Dons' 2012/2013 season to raise funds for two local charities.
Adam's first-person account, put together with the help of fellow Cowshed season ticket holder and professional writer Dan McCalla, details all the ups and downs of his gruelling 3000-mile mission. From the sunshine of the first ride to Cheltenham to the snow-bound hell en route to Carlisle (with a trip Down Under in between!), it's a riveting tale of a very special season through the eyes of one Dons fan.
Adam raised over £8,000 for charity over the course of the season, with the money being split equally between the MK Dons Sport and Education Trust and the Redway School in Netherfield. To boost that total, all the profits made from sales of the book will also be shared between the two good causes.
Simon Crampton, the Dons’ Head of Sports Medicine, writes a column called From The Bootroom in the matchday Red Dot programme and his columns for the 2012-13 season were compiled into a book called – you’ve guessed it – The Bootroom Book. It was so popular with fans that it was a sell-out but you may still be able to find a copy on eBay if you’re lucky.
