I'm cycling to raise money for Cancer Research UK

My Story

In early 2020 I was diagnosed with aggressive Prostate Cancer and underwent surgery to remove a tumour. In early 2021 the cancer returned with complications, leaving me with a limited life expectancy. Having received such wonderful care and treatment from our NHS, I wanted to give something back to show my appreciation. Sadly for some people, their prognosis is much worse than mine, and it is on this basis that I have decided to raise money for Cancer Research UK. My aim is to complete a charity cycle ride around the coast of mainland UK in 2022. I'll be visiting all 4 of the compass points - North, South, East and West, hoping to raise money to help with future treatments. I'll be leaving from Ness Point, Lowestoft, my home town and the most easterly point on the mainland, on May 1st 2022. I estimate it will take me 3 to 4 months with around 4000 miles of cycling and plenty of pies! Follow my progress on Instagram @compass4cancer. Send me a message of support, offer me a garden to camp in or even a sofa for the night, a coffee on the road or just a wave if you see the jersey. Please donate whatever you can. Nobody knows when they might need the work of this important charity. Keep pedlin! Kev
