Thank you for visiting my Cancer Research UK Cycle 300 page. This September, before the end of the month, I will complete 300 miles on my bike for Cancer Research UK. I will be pedalling harder than ever because I want to raise money for life-saving research and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
As many of you know my beautiful brother Glen lost his life to pancreatic cancer last year aged just 41. This cancer is so very difficult to detect and therefore has often metastasised making treatment very difficult. Glen loved life and was taken far too early. He ran several London Marathons and rode in sponsored cycle rides in London and from London to Brighton for charity. He didn't always train very hard but completed them with sheer determination. I will be relying on that a little for this challenge. I currently cycle about 10-15 miles per week on my rather old bike so I really need to 'up my game'! I will also be using Glens road racing bike for some of it if I can brave the razor sharp saddle!
Cancer affects so many of our lives in some way, hurting and taking away our loved ones. I will complete this challenge for Glen and look forward to the day when every cancer can be cured.
I appreciate its not an easy time financially for many at the moment but if you can spare anything at all then that would be wonderful, as every penny makes a huge difference to vital cancer research.
