I am an amateur cyclist who has been picked to represent Norther Ireland at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. To this point I have worked full time has an Occupational Therapist and training in my spare time. In order to prepare to the best of my potential for the games, as well as being on equal playing field with the majority of other riders in my chosen events, I have made the decision to take a period of nearly 3 months unpaid leave from my job. I am currently being assisted to raise money to fund this venture by family, friends and my local cycling club. Money raised will assist me with training needs and racing needs (including nutrition, recovery, equipment, equipment set up and maintainance), as well as general main as I have went on leave to fully concentrate on doing my best I will also use any funding raised to help towards my daily living during the competition. I appreciate any support. And I would like to say a massive thank you to anyone that has in the past supported me with encouragement on posts on my social media page And in person.
