The Ride Of Our Lives

Fundraising for Alzheimer's Research UK
raised of £10,000 target
We stand for everyone affected by dementia to find a cure


I've done some longish bike rides but nothing on this scale. I'm a grumpy old git heading from the UK to the edge of the continent, to Asia, to Istanbul - on a cheap bicycle. Friends think I'm nuts but my dad was taken by vascular dementia and, when my mother died last November after years with Alzheimer's, I knew I had to do something to aid the research. Probably, you too have had someone close living with dementia. Help me try to make a difference!

I've put my own life on hold for a few months to see what I can do. Please join me vicariously on the adventure. Do whatever you can to help the fundraising, spread the word and follow the ups and downs of the ride of my life, your life, our lives...

And please pray the weather's not as crap as it might be. Thank you!

Whatever happens, it's going to be a hell of a ride.
