Reasons for doing the ride:
My dad (Ian Skinner) had a double lung transplant at the Freeman in July 2014. Sadly after a three week battle he passed away. We raised £1500 for Freeman Heart and Lung Transplant Association running the marathon last year and are ready for our next challenge. We want to support any charities working with transplant patients/families/staff and who raise the profile of organ donation.
Cycling experience/miles per day:
Cycle up to 30 miles a few days weekly commuting.
Previously completed coast to coast 60 miles in a day.
I am a physiotherapist working in Yorkshire and a keen sports person. Running is probably my main hobby but I do have 3 bikes and have also participated in adventure racing.
