Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

A few years back I did the 'Toe2Toe' challenge, when I cycled from Sicily in Italy to Lands End here in the UK...a 3500 km ride in support of Cancer Research, a charity that does so much for people affected by this killer disease...no one can predict and it's devastating, trust me!

Now, I feel I need to do a new challenge after a poignant post by my brother on Facebook. It was regarding my dad, who passed away with Alzhemier's not knowing who we were or where he was...so sad...so emotional! 

I miss him so much, my hero, who was so strong, not afraid of anything...the perfect dad...yet succumbed  to this awful disease.

Although this challenge is not on such a grand scale as my previous ride, it becomes apparent why I'm doing this next one when you realise more than 850,000 people in the UK are living with dementia and most will be unaware of this special family time, living...but not living shall we say!

I'm going to ride 150 miles from Rossett to Bangor and back finishing at Cleopatras Cafe in Holt. The the route will posted on Facebook and www.pocolococycling.blogspot.co.uk 

I will be supported by the 'Bike Marshals' who cover many major sporting events around the country. They will give me that all important safety on route with 2 motorbike out-riders, combining with the support vehicle who will be carrying the all important spares and nutrition to enable me to have a trouble free ride...hopefully 😉

*** There will be a chance for people who donate £5 or more to win prizes by guessing how long the ride will take me? ***

*** You must place your prediction to the nearest seconds on a message when you donate. The 3 people who are the closest with their times will WIN ***
