My Story

This is for my Dad. And this is also for you. (Oh yes it is!). No one gets to a reasonable age without being touched by Cancer in one way or another. (Cancer the disease and not the star sign!). For your pleasure on June the 21st of June I will be one of a very few people who will be taking part in a challenge in aid of Cancer Research UK, for motorcyclists on cheap and inappropriate motorcycles to ride from Land’s End to John O'Groats in under 24hrs on the longest day of the year. The bikes must have been bought for no more than £600! I have chosen to do this challenge on a 1978 BMW R45 motorcycle that is less reliable than a British Parliamentary system deciding weather to invade a country to look for something that doesn't exist or if it's a great idea to change from one polluting fuel to another. Riding this thing for 2000 rather slow miles will be an interesting affair considering the likelihood that at some point I may need to push it.Then again, trying to stay awake from 3am until I reach JoG 1000 odd miles later is possibly more of a challenge. Anything at all donated will be gratefully received. You never know as one day your life could depend on it. I have chosen my donations to go to Pancreatic Cancer research. This is the cancer that took my dad in only 10months. It also took many rich an famous people like Steve Jobs and Patrick Swayze. I'll keep you all updated on my progress by my motorcycle YouTube channel as I'll need to put in quite a few miles to make certain my arse is ready for this :) Love to everyone, (Apart from tax inspectors.)

Pancreatic cancer

Survival rates for pancreatic cancer remain stubbornly low in the UK, often because the disease is diagnosed late and is difficult to treat. Help Cancer Research UK make progress in one of the biggest research challenges its scientists are facing – to find better ways to detect and treat the disease.
