Story

From 6 February 2017 I will be part of a team of women cyclists riding through Vietnam and Cambodia to support the work of 3 charities; Breast Cancer Care, Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action.  I will cycle over 450 kms over 6 days, both on and off-road - experiencing rural Vietnam and Cambodia, away from tourist trails and hotspots.

The training has been made harder as after I had signed up for the challenge, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis - a life-long auto-immune condition that causes pain, swelling and stiffness in the joints.

So besides training hard I needed to raise a minimum of £3,200 by November 2016 to support the work of the Women V Cancer charities. I have so far raised £5,000, the majority of which has been raised through fund-raising events and paid to Action for Charity Women V Cancer directly.

Once I am in South East Asia, I will hopefully be able to update you on my daily progress through my blog:
