Castle to Castle Bike Ride

Raising money for: Odyssey

Jane M

The Challenge

We are cancer patients (one terminally ill) cycling 220 miles from Cardiff to Caernarfon over 7 days. We will support each other to complete this challenge. The weather and hills will not defeat us!

The Charity

Odyssey is a small cancer charity which has had a life changing impact not just on us but on 100’s of others.A cancer diagnosis can leave you feeling as if there's nothing to live for but Odyssey outdoor courses turn you around emotionally, so that you start living with enthusiasm. The importance of their work needs national recognition and funding

The Training

My challenge has been to work up to four hours a day on a bike, as I have secondary bone cancer in my pelvis. A ladies' gym, Ènergie, gave me a free month's membership to help me prepare. In terms of sponsorship, it has been an intensive few months but I have now raised over £2,000, including money raised by selling cakes. I was interviewed by Lesley Dolphin on Radio Suffolk about Odyssey and the bike ride. Support from everyone has been overwhelming. I can't wait to set off and earn the money!
