Story

I'll be riding the length of the country in memory of one my greatest supporters (my Aunt Kate) who sadly passed away back in March. The journey will see me ride a mere 447 miles from Sheppey in Kent to the Farne Islands in Northumbria (where her ashes will be scattered), stopping off halfway to play a gig at the Whitwell Festival of Music. I'm aiming to achieve this in 7 days and set off on the 5th September. 

I haven't ridden a bike in about 10 years and I've probably never been so unfit so this is a pretty ludicrous challenge even by my standards.

I'll be filming the journey as part of a music video to an upcoming single off my new record. Kate would have been one of the first people to hear it so it makes sense to keep her involved even if she's no longer around. 

Ultimately, I hope the end result injects some inspiration into the world whilst in the process raising money for a positive cause. 

Cancer is a massive 'C' word that we're all affected by. All donations are hugely appreciated!!
