I plan to cycle an average of 70+ miles per day, but detours and wrong turns may increase this.
I would like to do this for the charity Asthma UK. My Mum and Dad both suffered with asthma as do my four siblings. Recently my sister was rushed into hospital after having suffered an acute asthma attack and had to remain there for 4 days. Fortunately, I managed to escape the clutches of this disease and enjoy a relatively healthy life (must be due to the milkman!).
