We've all heard the statistics that 1 in 3 of us will be affected by cancer. Nothing can prepare us for that time if it happens.
Those close to my family and I will know that unfortunately we lost Dad to cancer in June 2018.
Cycling was and still is a great help to me. I find it clears the mind and it is a great time to think.
This couldn't have been more true than after Dad's passing, so after much thought and discussion with my family I decided that I wanted to do something to help contribute to the amazing research that will hopefully one day cure this terrible disease. A little bike ride was the obvious choice!
Please donate to my page today and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
Somehow I have managed to get some training in around family life and work! Even squeezed a weekend cycling in Belgium in, pretty flat but oh so windy. Plus with a loaded bike, it made for some good training.
Several laps of the Isle of Wight have also been employed over the past couple of months as well as cycling to work. the one thing I have been mindful of is quality miles over quantity, being time hungry means I have to try and make the most out of each ride so I have no choice other than to look for hills!
I have also learned that my ageing body needs more fuel nowadays, I can no longer do a 40 mile ride on fluids alone!!
So only a few weeks to go now so I need to keep the momentum going!!
