After too many years sitting at my desk, I've decided it's time to dust off the bike and do something about my waistline - and help some other along the way.
So I'm riding coast to coast, from my company's most western depot in Aberytswth to our most eastern in Norwich - then onward to the sea. That's about 360 miles and judging by my curent fitness it's going to hurt a lot!
But I'm incredibly lucky, because I've cycled since I was child and always loved it - others are not so fortunate...
The charity I've chosen to ride for is Whizz-Kidz.
Whizz-Kidz provides disabled children with the essential wheelchairs and other mobility equipment they need to lead fun and active childhoods.
But that's just the start. All around the country disabled children are meeting and making friends at a growing network of Whizz-Kidz clubs. They’re having fun around obstacle courses, knocking over skittles, doing wheelies and learning about boring but important things like road safety. They’re forming campaign groups and meeting MPs, contacting the press, and designing campaign badges and posters. And because growing up can be a bit scary, they’re taking part in work placement programmes and life skills events.
I've been involved with helping Whizz Kidz for some years and they are a fantastic organisation. Please dig deep and help me raise at least £2000 for such a worthy cause.
