Story

The Tandem Tart Challenge   

The time trial season is just about to start and I am getting ready to accommodate a further 45 Partners who have put their names down to join the 'Tart Club'. What an incredible and humbling response I have had from the running and cycling community in not only accepting this challenge, but also in offering their support in many other ways.

Who would have thought that in just under two years my fundraising campaign would have reached a staggering £7275.  All your donations are being used for research purposes only.  I fear that a cure may not be found in my lifetime but an early diagnosis and support is so important.  I do believe that current research projects are coming ever closer to making this a reality.   

I will continue to ride the shorter distances for the time being but I do have a 50 miler in mind this year.  My ultimate cycling goal however is to ride a 12 hour time trial on the tandem again, that is what I am aspiring to achieve.  A pretty big goal for some people but as a seasoned endurance cyclist, a challenge that I have met on many occasions in the past.

The difference now is that I am living with ME.

Please help me to raise £12,000 for the ME Associations Ramsay Research Fund so that one day we will find a cure.  Thank you.
