    Story

    I want to help Ward 41 at the RVI Newcastle and give something back to them for looking after my mum last year after she suffered a stroke and passed away suddenly after a short spell in hospital.
    I was devastated and think cycling turned into a coping method and would disappear for hours instead of sitting being angry and upset. So if I can cycle to raise money for the ward who looked after her it would mean alot to me knowing that I'd be helping other families affected by strokes.
    I'm attempting to ride the Coast to Coast cycle route from Whitehaven to Sunderland which is 135 miles in one day on the 18th August 2018.
    Wish me luck. Miss you Mam
