Story

Update 16/4/14: so far I've cycled over 1000 training miles since beginning of March, in 67 hours.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

As I've got older I've got worse for accepting challenges! Perhaps call it my perpetual mid-life crisis. I suppose it started with black belt in karate, then running the London marathon, and finally because all of the above caused arthritis in my feet, I've switched properly to cycling. This epic ride is going to be harder than all previous madcap ideas! Cycling for 9 days averaging 106 miles per day, and then crashing out in a tent, is not everyone's idea of a "holiday"! Being bonkers certainly helps. But this is nothing compared with dementia and what it can do to sufferers and their families/friends. It is a horrible scary thing and nobody is immune. Please help me to help others!! THANK YOU ALL MY LOVELY FRIENDS :-)
