I'm taking on Round Britain Your Way

I'm taking on Round Britain Your Way to raise vital funds so young people can still get the support they need to rebuild their lives after cancer. Young people in recovery are going to need the Trust more than ever in the aftermath of COVID-19. Isolation, loneliness, anxiety, anger and fear are all challenges young people and their families experience during and after cancer treatment. COVID-19 is intensifying every one of these to unimaginable levels. I initially challenged myself to cycle 150 miles in September to help make sure the Trust is still there for the young people it supports, but having passed that target I've reset my goal to 478 miles which Google says is the distance from my house to the EMCT office in Cowes.

Please support me on my challenge and make a donation. Whatever you can donate, any amount will help young people start to reimagine a future they might never have thought was possible.

My Updates

End of the Challenge - thank you everyone for your support!

Wednesday 30th Sep
Today is the last day of the challenge and I've logged the last of my miles today, taking my total to 540 miles.  I want to send a massive thank you to everyone who's given me their support to reach this target, whether with generous donations or words and messages of support.  My legs are definitely looking forward to a bit of a rest, but it's all been worth it.  Thanks very much again to everyone who's supported me along the way.  The page is still open for anyone who still wants to make a last minute donation - every little bit helps.

Challenge completed!

Sunday 27th Sep
I'm delighted to have completed the 478 miles I've been riding virtually from Edinburgh to the Isle of Wight - sadly, but not unsurprisingly, Cowes looks like the inside of my garage but I'm happy to have been able to complete the "journey".  After a weekend off last weekend I covered the last 127 miles this week finishing on Saturday afternoon.  There's still a few days left in September so I'm not going to stop....after-all, I still need to get back home from Cowes.....;-)
If anyone is still to donate then please please do, and support this fantastic charity.

Challenge Update

Wednesday 9th Sep
So 9 days in an I've passed through the 150 miles of my initial target.  So time for a new goal.  Maybe a bit ambitiously I'm now aiming to get to 478 miles which according to Google Maps is the distance from my house to the EMCT office in Cowes! Fingers crossed!
