In January 2012 I slipped and fell whilst walking off a winter climb on the north face of ben nevis and fell 100m down a rocky wintery slope. I am lucky to be alive thanks to Lochabar Mountain Rescue. I broke my pelvis in three places, dislocated my right knee and had a compound fracture of my left heel bone into the boot.

The doctors did their best but the foot got infected and there was a huge risk that I would have to have it amputated. However, after 6 tough months of willing my foot to get better and high doses of antibiotics my foot finally recovered. Whilst I still have difficulty in walking, my foot has taken well to cycling. So I thought what better way to give something back to the Mountain Rescue Team who saved my life than to cycle the length of the country from John O'Groats to Lands End. I know it is going to be a huge challenge but I'm so grateful to be up and active after my continuous rehabilitation.

Please support me either by cycling along side, driving a support vehicle, giving money or helping me train. I know this is going to be a huge challenge especially where I am starting from but we all know how important Mountain Rescue are.

Please donate generously.
