Thanks for visiting our team fundraising page.

Having seen a large part of the world by train, plane and automobile (and Europe alone in my adapted car for the EEDR); it was time to do something super silly!

In June 2013, Kasia and I decided to travel approximately 1100 miles on a new form of transport.

Beginning on September 6th 2013, and aiming to finish on October 5th 2013; we pledged to go from John o Groats (furthest northern point of Scotland) to Lands End (furthest southern point of England) by wheelchair and bicycle.

The aims of the trip are:

- to challenge ourselves individually more than ever before
- as an ambassador for Britain's Personal Best; to advocate this Olympic legacy/Big Lottery funded project and increase sign-ups on
- to show the world a positive view of disability
- to show disabled people what is truly possible
- to live for the moment and do what you believe in

Even getting to a position where the trip could take place was extremely difficult. We needed a safe route, equipment, money PR and goodwill! Here's how it went:

- For Kasia's bike Halfords sponsored her a Victoria Pendleton and all the accessories she needed
- Regarding health and fitness we were sponsored by toda to use their immune boosting drops
- I had to self fund £320 for spare wheelchair batteries. Expensive but necessary. Other sponsors declined this item.
- I recruited a care assistant, support driver and planning/logistics manager. Martin Gascoigne was a crucial piece of the puzzle. Thanks mate.
- He'll be following us closely for safety in my adapted Kia car.
- Britain's Personal Best sponsored accommodation, food and petrol
- Britain's Personal Best also provided vast amounts of PR, alongside Scope. Before we set off; tv, radio and newspapers had supported
- 'Just ask James' designed our safety banner/flags and Footprint printed them for free

So my call to actions for you are:

- Spread the message
- Follow the blog and tweets
- Come and say hi if you're along our route
