I was planning on doing a wee trip in Dec to get back into bike-packing when Fraser told me that he had been diagnosed with MND, of which there is no current cure.
Fraser is the guy who interviewed me for my first 'real' job in IT, and he must of saw something in me, as I landed the job to work with him on his team, where I learnt a great deal, and am truly grateful for that opportunity as I'm still working in the 'industry' today.
Therefore I would like to try and help raise funds for MND Scotland by attempting my wee trek in Dec from Marrakesh in Morocco, to Madrid in Spain, its roughly about 1000 miles, route still to be confirmed.
As a wee training warm-up, I'm planning on riding the NC500 self sufficient, getting a train after work to Inverness, so starting on Wed 16 Nov evening and hopefully complete it by Sunday 20 Nov, then work out how to get home!!
