Story

Hey thanks for taking the time to visit my page.

Myself and two of my closest friends are embarking on this trip of a lifetime or..... an impossible nightmare trip that some would say.

Cycling from Colchester to Ibiza (1.285 Miles) with just ourselves our bikes and bare essentials. We plan on camping the majority of days (never camped before in my life) then possibly an occasional rest in a bed if we find somewhere suitable along the way when extremely exhausted. Personally I haven't had much experience with long distance riding, my biking history involves racing mates to school or attempting some jumps in the woods and falling off 80% of the time. Therefore this trip will not come easy to myself. 

Our journey will begin in our home town Colchester on 22nd of July 2017 where we will cycle to the Eurotunnel station @ St. Pancras, London (64.5 miles). Then from Paris it's a 725 mile ride through France and Spain to the Port of Barcelona. From there it is a 9 hour ferry to the Island where we can put our feet up, and chill!

Right now I cannot imagine how hard this task will be, as I'm now currently writing this with 6 weeks to go until we set off, my total daily milage is 15miles so far. I believe my determination, the boys & hard work from now will get me to the finish.

Any Donations will be highly appreciated regardless of the amount, please also check out Brad & Marcus Just giving pages and if you'd like to donate & know all three of us it would be great if you could equally split the monies. 

I have chosen to personally raise money for British Red Cross,  a volunteer-led humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. 


Thankyou x
