Raising money for MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT
The Challenge
Cycling from John O'groats to Lands End in 10 days.
The Charity
Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer, myself included. Whoever finds a cure will have a licence to print money. In the meantime those who care for the suffering need our support.
The Training
I trained for the 8 months prior to the challenge. In all weathers, through one of the harshest winters we have had for many years. Gradually building up the distance until I was covering an average of 400 miles a week prior to undertaking the charity ride. The biggest difficulty, being able to fit 6-7 hour training rides around work & family life. I am very grateful to loved ones & colleagues for their support & understanding.
