Riding In The Race Against Cancer
Raising money for Action Cancer
The Challenge
Cycling from Lands End to John O' Groats over a period of sixteen days, carrying all our equipment, camping gear, clothes, bike tools etc. with us.
The Charity
My mother died of cancer four years ago and I did this in her memory with my brother and three great friends.
The Training
We had to train constantly before the cycle, lots of uphill and distance training, even still we found it difficult, we had to battle problems like dehydration, flat tyres, broken wheels, great hills and petty arguments, even still we made it through the cycle closer as friends and with no injuries.
