Charity Registration No. 1069284


Having just finished my first term of university I can confirm that the phrase ‘freshers fifteen/ 15lb freshers’ is fairly accurate. Freshers week alone seemed to move my belt hole position several spaces. As a result I think that getting an extra bit of exercise can do me no harm and the length of university summer holidays gives me plenty of time to do this. So I am planning to pop on my bicycle,cycling the whole way across America; a total of 4270 miles. Which if I succeed in doing will make me one the youngest Britons ever to complete the challenge.

I will be starting on the West coast in Seattle in mid June working my way in the direction of the pond for 9 weeks hopefully by the end of which I will have arrived at my destination; Boston. I say hopefully as for 9 weeks I will be cycling 80 miles a day, through all types of terrain, temperatures well into the high thirties and sleeping under canvas.

I am doing all of this in support of EACH which is a charity which provides invaluable support for children with life-threatening conditions across East Anglia. A donation (all of which goes to EACH) no matter how small will go a long way in helping these children and their families.
