Hi, thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.
I am currently planning a long distance charity cycle ride, where I will ride the length of France over six days. Starting on May 21st from the ferry in Calais, I’ll head for Paris then essentially follow my nose until I get to Lourdes on Saturday 27th May, 1009km later, and in time for the start of the annual Birmingham Diocesan Pilgrimage which I’ve attended over recent years. The following day I will complete my journey climbing several thousand feet, until I reach the Spanish boarder high up in the stunning Pyrenees having conquered the Col du Pourtalet.

I will be once again riding for Cancer Research UK so that they can continue the fight against cancer. During the journey, I will be remembering all of the family and many friends lost to this awful disease. My only hope is that within my lifetime, a cure is found for all types of Cancer. Any support you can give me in completing this challenge will go towards this ultimate goal
I will be funding 100% of the costs associated with this trip with all proceeds going to Cancer Research UK.
