Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have been giving this epic challenge of riding 750 miles over 8 days. Cycling from Paris to Nice over some of the Tour de France route.

As well as this I will be doing a variety of events throughout the year, which will also include the ride 100 in August and my first ever triathlon at Easter.

All money will go towards the amazing work the Willen hospice do looking after terminally ill people. My mum was in a hospice and without the care of the amazing nurses there, she wouldn't have been around as long as she was.

This ride is a challenge for me, but in memory for my mum, who I lost 16 years ago to the dreaded disease. I miss her everyday and can't wait to complete this ride in her memory next September!
