Weʼve raised £0 to help to fund my cycling ambition and to show many other people with epilepsy what you can achieve if you try hard enough.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Hello my name is Thomas Goodall the owner of this page 'the cycling bible'. Since the age of just 5 years old I was diagnosed with absence seizures which is a type of epilepsy which stops my brain operating properly and means I would fall to the ground without even knowing. At the age of 10 when I was in the process of growing out of this type of illness they came back as nocturnal seizures which is where I would have a full blown seizures but during the night. This was extremely mentally straining and at some points I just wanted to collapse to the ground and cry.
I first started cycling as a way to strengthen my left hand side of my body due to the fact that my condition had made it very hard for me to even walk. I held my left arm because I didn't have the strength to keep it up and limped instead of walked. I soon decided that once I managed to strengthen my legs up I decided that I wanted to do this as a new sport , and one that I immensely enjoy.
I created this page to show that no matter what condition you have how ill you are that if you put enough dedication into something you can achieve anything. Yes you can just sit down on a chair feeling sorry for yourself but what you really need to do is live life to the full because you only have one chance. Not just have I pushed myself as hard as possible as far as cycling is concerned but also done things that drs said I could never do. Who else with epilepsy has ever flown a plane.
All I'm here to say is don't let obstacles get in your way, and when they do run straight at them with all confidence and you will come out victorious.
Anyone who wants to sponsor me please donate below to help me succeed.
