Probably should have updated this earlier. I started Cycling 3 years ago I had started putting weight on after stopping smoking in January 2015. It wasn't immediate success as first day out I managed about 3 miles. But with dedication and hard work I perservered. Every year since I have tried to do one charity event 2015 70 miles, 2016 110 miles, 2017 153 miles. So this year I'm attempting my first double century. Why Childrens Hospice? after last year I asked the family for help in choosing this years charity and as a father and grandfather children are very important to me. The work being done by the Hospice is awesome I visited last week and I have total admiration for the work being done by nurses and volunteers. I hope I can raise as much as possible for this fantastic charity and I know the cycle will be a big challenge but its nothing like the challenge faced by children and their families who rely on help from the hospice.
