I’ve entered a cycling challenge this September 2019.  Ride Across Britain takes me well out of my comfort zone and is a genuine challenge requiring many months of training.  Before entering, I’d cycled over 100 miles in one day just once. This challenge is 109 mile/day every day for 9 days to go from Land’s End to John o’Groats, and 52885 feet of ascent.  That’s like 9 back to back hilly marathons.

I am using this to raise money for two causes than mean something to me.  These are: the Bethan Roper Trust for Refugees and Maggie’s.  I’m after your money! My modest target is £2 for every mile I cycle, which is £980 to each.  You can give to just one or, even better, both causes.  Thank you in advance.  More details are on each of the links below.

Maggie’s [Cancer] centre in Swansea has been a great help to our friends Martin and Anne as Martin’s cancer progressed. Martin died on 30 March 2019.  A wonderful guy who enriched so many people’s lives, including ours. Please go here to donate.

In memory of Bethan Roper who was killed in a train accident in December 2018, the Trust aims to continue her work, helping others.   Please go here to donate.
