Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Chris here....

After a stroke 5 years ago they discovered an aneurysm on my brain. 2 successful operations at Bristol Frenchay hospital defused the ticking time bomb in my head with a carotid artery by pass and coil. The surgical team were amazing. The stroke was triggered I’m sure by my atrial fribulation / flutter, the aneurysm was a lucky find but for 12 years I was treated with beta blockers and had 2 cardio versions. Last June I had a  cardio ablation which has changed my life. I’m back to fighting strength have lost 2 stone and feel full of energy, it’s unbelievable how much better I feel and I’m off all my medication. I’m doing the SCOTLAND cycle for the British heart foundation in order to allow them to continue to pioneer procedures such as the ablation in order to give those with AF a fighting chance of getting their lives back to normal.

So with a couple of pals Ian Proud and Alistair Cooper to keep me company and of course  my lovely wife Sue driving the support vehicle and taking care of luggage and Bed and breakfast logistics we’re planning to leave Kirkcudbright  on Sunday 15th July 2018 and arriving in John O'Groats on Saturday 21st July

We’ll be in the following locations hopefully on the following days

AYR - Sunday 15th July 

TARBERT - Monday 16th 

PORTNACROISH - Tuesday 17th 

FORT AUGUSTUS - Wednesday 18th 

TAIN - Thursday 19th

TONGUE - Friday 20th
