Story

Thanks for taking the time to look at my page.

As a founder member of the witney fatletes (slightly overweight athletes from the witney area, some of you reading this will know who you are) you will all know that this will definitely be my biggest challenge to date! When Rox and Laura first mentioned it, I assumed they wanted me to drive the car, morale of this story, never assume anything! Next thing I knew I was on the bike (pushbike) in November riding in terrential rain and gale force winds, oh my god what have I done?

I think you would all agree that this terrible disease in whatever form unfortunately affects everyone, rich, poor, old and young. For this reason I have chosen to cycle from John O' Groats to Lands End in June of this year with 4 other friends to raise money for cancer research uk.

Please feel free to sponsor me whatever you think I am worth, just to let you know that is nearly 1000 miles and I am aiming to do it in 10 days. Yes thats almost 100 miles per day, any donations welcomed for this amazing cause!

So here we are, getting ready for a good nightsleep ready to start the first day of cycling at john o groats tomorrow! Wish me luck and please donate if you can. Its going to be hard! Night all. Jon!

So its only 4 weeks to go to the day! The training is going well even after having numerous punctures, getting soaking wet and generally aching all over, the sign of things to come! I would just like to thank you all for your donations, please keep donating if you can. Jon
