Hello everyone I need your help to achieve some massive goals I have set for the next 2 years and inspire my kids and anyone else who wants to go from overweight and unhealthy to achieving their goals and dreams.
In May 2015 I was 16 stone and due to being over weight had some health issues the one causing me the most issues was an enlarged liver. The doctors thought that I had a drink problem because of it, I rarely drink so it was a bitter pill to swollow when they did not believe me. They told me I had to do something soon otherwise the liver would not be able to recover.
I have 2 young children Frankie she is 5 and Drew he is 3 and I decided I had to do something about it for them. So I bought a bike and started riding to work through all weather. I started to lose weight quickly and by December I was down to 12 and a half stone.
By this point I found out that I am pretty good at cycling so I joined a cycling club Athlon Sport Cycling who have been brilliant with support and advice. I entered the Tour of Cambridge which is a Grand Fondo and the qualifiers for the UCI Worlds which this year was held in Austrailia which I could not afford to go to but qualified for.
2017 the worlds are in Albi France so I am detirmined to go in the road race and Time Trial and prove to my kids that you can do anything when you keep trying and never give up and give it your all.
So for this I need to get a Time Trial bike and kit to be able able to compete.
Also I will be attempting to break the 35 to 39 year old world hour record at the end of 2017 early 2018 which is pretty much the hardest thing you can do on a bike. I am hoping to do this in the Olympic Velodrome in Stratford.
So please help me inspire people help me show that no matter how unhealthy over weight or old you are you can still achieve remarkable things help a dad show his kids that with hard work and passion and the support of good people you can do anything.
Keep tyring never give up.
