Reasons for doing the ride:

Always fancied going to Newcastle….

Not really.

My daughter, Lily, was diagnosed with DCM at 3 months old and received a heart transplant at 7 months old, following a period of time on the Berlin Heart.

My other daughter, Maisey, has also been diagnosed with a heart condition but is being controlled well with medication.

I would love to raise awareness and money for a charity close to my heart.

Cycling experience/miles per day:


Having enjoyed cycling from a young age, I finally purchased a roadie a couple of years back and haven’t regretted it.

I try and get out once at the weekend for an hour or two.  Longest ride so far is 42 miles – I’m fairly competent but I won’t be racing up any hills.


I am a 33 year old Sales Director from Gloucestershire, with a lovely wife and two great kids.
