We fund care, campaigning and research to achieve a world free from MND


Hello Again!

Before we go any further, thank you for clicking onto this link. I know that you get pestered to give to any number of worthy causes!

Last year we raised a decent sum for five charities, one of which was the Motor Neurone Disease Association. I had heard of people who had MND but never had any contact with it on a personal level. That changed at the start of this year when a mate was diagnosed with MND.

Dave has been brilliant at keeping his many pals right in the loop as to how his life has turned upside-down, courtesy of this disease. It's because of becoming more aware of what sufferers have to go through, and the fact that as of now, there is no cure for MND that I felt that it would be terrific to raise funds for the MNDA again.

My challenge is to cycle out to Gibraltar, solo and unsupported. The distance is almost 2300 miles, which is the same as the Tour de France: unlike the pros, I will not have any rest days and I will be carrying my own luggage! I want to complete it by riding 21 consecutive centuries, which is one more than I've done previously. So that's all straightforward then, hah-hah!

So that's what it's all about. If you have a couple of minutes spare and can find absolutely nothing better to do, please have a look at my blog at . Wi-Fi allowing, I'll keep it going throughout: consider yourselves warned, hah-hah!

Very best wishes,
