I am cycling 106 miles of Northumbrian hills for ME Research UK because it's important that we better understand CFS/ME.

Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Living with CFS/ME myself – although thankfully getting better all the time – I'm aware of how poorly understood it is. ME Research UK is the only UK charity that raises money specifically to fund scientific research into this debilitating condition, its underlying causes and potential treatments. That's why I'm cycling 106 very hilly miles in this year's Virgin Money Cyclone Challenge (Newcastle–Rothbury–Bellingham–Newcastle), having only got back on a bike last May after about twenty years off. Please support me in this ridiculous endeavour by donating generously.

And if it goes well, I might do the Hell of Hexham in July...
