Story

Hello everyone, welcome to my fundraising page in support of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Being a fairly keen, but very amateur cyclist, I've decided to do what any fairly keen very amateur cyclists does, and RIDE 969 MILES FROM ONE END OF BRITAIN TO THE OTHER IN 9 DAYS!

As challenges go, I feel this will be... well, very challenging. But in comparison to what the victims and families of cancer go through, it's a challenge I'm prepared to step up to. Having recently lost my Uncle and my Brother to cancer, I wanted to return the support to those that have supported my own family through those distressing times.

So, the ride will take place on 9th - 17th September 2017 and as much of a challenge that the actual ride will be, a great achievement for myself will be completing enough training beforehand. All that know me, know I have a great fondness for cider, pies and all things that do not make a great athlete, so this will be a bit of a life changing journey for me. Follow my progress as I train with my friends from the 'Seend Pork Pie Cycling Club'. (Yes, we will make that a thing!)

Great thanks to you all for your support, both in encouragement and donations.

And now, a word from my sponsors... ;)
