Story

I’m going to ride London Edinburgh London raising money for the MS Society. With a family connection to MS I've witnessed the effects this disease can have. Support, finding better treatments, and generally fighting MS is so important and a cause very close to my heart.

London Edinburgh London is a once every 4 year (5 thanks covid) blue riband audax event that is 1568km in length and a time limit of 125 hours. For the pedants it’s London, Dunfermline, Debden, but the idea is that it’s a canny long way :)

I’ve completed long rides before but this will be further than anything I’ve done. I’ll post updates on my Instagram, Strava pages, and I will have a GPS tracking link.

Please support me by following along, and if possible donating to the MS Society also.

About MS

Multiple Sclerosis is the most common progressive neurological condition affecting young adults, with diagnosis generally between the ages of 20 and 40. MS is the result of damage to the myelin - a protective sheath surrounding nerve fibres of the central nervous system. When myelin is damaged this interferes with messages from the brain and other parts of the body causing a wide range of symptoms including fatigue, mobility issues and problems with co-ordination.

There is currently no cure for MS. For some people, MS is characterised by periods of relapse and remission while for others it has a progressive pattern. For everyone, it makes life unpredictable.

The MS Society depends entirely on charitable fundraising and the support of the public and volunteers to be able to do their work.
