Story

I know.  I hear you.  "What's he doing NOW?!!!"

Well, On Sunday September 17th, I will be setting off at 09:00 on the iconic Brands Hatch race track.  My lap times will be somewhat lower than usual however, as I am undertaking a 6 hour challenge on my bike.

The track undulates, with a 1 in 9 hill at one point, so just think "Interval Training" for 6 hours, and you'll be close.

I aim to get to 100 miles ridden in that time, which will require a decent average speed, but with the help and support of other riders from Blind Veterans UK, I feel sure I will get very close!

I work for Blind Veterans UK on a voluntary basis and am now considered to be their "Writer in Residence" so I get to meet some amazing people and write-up some even more amazing stories.  Blind Veterans UK rely solely on donations, so I want to help as much as I can.

I appreciate I have gone from London to Amsterdam a couple of times recently for Prostate Cancer UK, but if you can spare any amount, the total can be reached swiftly and I can focus my efforts on the training, as this one is a different kind of beast!

Thank you so much, for anything you can click into the pot.
