Story

During my preparation for the Beijing 2008 Paralympics I suffered a series of injuries, which left me unable to run for a number of months, I was left doing all my training sessions on a bike.  Which meant I was unable to train with my usual training group, I found a new training partner in the last place you would expect.  My next-door neighbour, Chris.  We trained together for a number of months as I tried to regain fitness for the games.  Unfortunately the injuries got the better of me and I was unable compete.

Well that was then, so what now.  Well I have retired from Athletics and was left looking for the next big challenge.  And there it was, the, Deloitte Ride Across Britain, 1000 miles in 9 days, John O’Groats- Lands End, 120 miles a day, and it is in aid of the very organization that supported me through 3 Paralympic games, Paralympics GB, and who else could I ride with other than my neighbor, Chris Spooner.

So please help make this bum numbing experience a little easier, by sponsoring Chris, and me and help us raise much needed funds for the Paralympians of the future
