cycling to Land's End from John o'Groats in 7 days for Epilepsy Society because it's the kind of thing Gareth would have done too.

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my page.

Life is short. My best mate for many years, Gareth, died at the end of last year from complications following a seizure in his sleep. He was only 34.

I was invited by two friends, Sean Conway and James Ketchell, to ride the classic length of the UK bike ride back in January this year - only to make things extra tough we decided in the spirit of these austere times we should aim to do the 900 miles in one week, unsupported by a vehicle and on a budget on the road of less than £100 each (none of which comes out of your donations).

I thought it was fitting to dedicate the ride to Gareth: he was always up for doing something crazy. Given he sadly passed away due to suffering with this illness I'd like it to help those who do and will have this condition.

We are leaving John O' Groats on 24th May and aim to be in Lands End by 30th. If you're along the way please do say hi or even ride with us for a section. I will keep my blog updated with more:
