My Story

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 have always enjoyed cycling but got a lot more serious during lockdown. As well as raising money for a great charity, this challenge will give me a reason to get out even more often. Every penny makes a huge difference to vital cancer research so please give whatever you can. I expected some hurdles with this challenge, but not acute insertional Achilles tendinopathy on day 2!!! After an enforced rest day and a visit to my new friend Isaac Allen at Back in Motion Physiotherapy, I am back on the road. Miracles do cost more, but only £78.50 it turns out. Just over 3 weeks into the month and I have passed the target. No-one is more surprised than I am! Thanks to all those who have donated so far, and if you are visiting for the first time, please add to the total if you can. I plan to keep pedalling until the end of the month.
