Emily K

The Challenge

Cycling 400 miles from Paris to London ,paying our respects at many cemeteries and memorials along the way, culminating in a mass show of strength and support by riding through London in h4h colours

The Charity

My partner is in the army and has completed 3 tours of duty and seen first hand the effects of war. I have met many injured service personnel who have had life changing injuries and face lifes' new challenges head on and are such a huge inspiration to so many. Help for heroes has done so much anything I can do to help has to be worth it

The Training

I'm by no means a cyclist! I ride a hybrid bike with a wicker basket on the front and my h4h teddy on the back! For me it's a huge challenge but nothing is too much when you see the injured guys riding their hand bikes up those hills. I'm very proud and humbled to have ridden alongside a triple amputee, who totally kicked my butt and made me realise if we all dig deep and think of others we can achieve anything..
