FINISHED 💯 🚴‍♂️🥵😃💥🍾🍺🏆 21st October 

My cycling challenge in 2022 is to conquer the 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs in Britain (from the original book by the famous cycling hill climber Simon Warren). I love riding my bike hence I always feel really guilty about asking my family & friends to donate their money but the devastating impact that Parkinson's has had on my father in law Stuart's life inspires me to keep doing it. In such a short time a once strong and physically imposing man who worked in the coal mines of Nottinghamshire has become so frail and vulnerable.

This challenge will take me all over the UK, to the corners of England, Wales & Scotland starting with Cheddar Gorge in the Mendip Hills and finishing with Constitution Hill in Swansea. 

It will take about 30 days cycling to complete, I will ride approximately 3500km and climb about 50,000m. Each day will be a full days cycling with some days including one of the climbs and others days up 6 or 7 climbs. It will include iconic hill climbs such as the Winnats Pass in Derbyshire, Wrynose Pass and Hardknott Pass in the Lake District, the Bealach-Na-Ba in NW Scotland and the hills of Yorkshire made famous in the 2014 Tour de France. 

I started in March and am aiming to complete by the end of October.

Please support me in this challenge by donating to this very worthy cause, the funds raised will go towards Cure Parkinson’s pioneering and vital research into a cure for Parkinson’s.
