Story

I am collecting money for the keep it up campaign. 

The keep it up campaign raises money for yorkshire air ambulance and the huddersfield town academy with 50% going to both. 

This is a major challenge for me. I have not ridden a bike since the new millenium. I think my previous longest ride was 1mile. So it won't be easy.

I have wanted to do this challenge since the first year but never had the bottle or someone to convince me to do it until this year. Me and a old school friend Josh agreed we would do it if the other one did. So here I am relearning to ride a bike and then train to cycle the 250 miles from the emirates stadium in Islington to Huddersfield in 3 days.

As a climber I believe the YAA is essential to help anyone in need in a remote areas. Their service saves lives daily! I am also a huge football fan and think any money towards youth development is excellent.

Please sponsor me to help keep the air ambulances flying and youth football developing.

I am also going to personally match the highest amount of sponsorship I get off of a single person

Thanks to everyone who has sponsored me. I have now finished my training and resting before the big ride. For training I have done around 350miles riding since January with almost 6km of ascent. I have been knocked over by a van and twice flown over the handle bars. :o)
