I have worked in the world of investment for over 30 years specialising in helping charities. After discovering road cycling in 2012, I am now a MAMIL (Middle Aged Man in Lycra) with a patient family, Liza and two wonderful boys who think I'm quite mad. We live in Suffolk i.e. perfect training for the hills!!! And this challenge will nurture the lifelong but healthy rivalry with elder brother Nick as well as with our co riders.

As a trustee of Bowel & Cancer Research, I am proud of the amazing work of the charity.  It is a privilege to take part in this incredible journey (1000 miles, 57,000ft to climb in 12 days).  Although as an 'aged bum’, I am happy to suffer for a great cause, I will need your help to raise money to fund much need research.
