In June 2018, I am joining a group of middle aged 'bums' who are cycling around 1,000 miles from Lands End to John o'Groats, the cycle that many regard as the as the ultimate cycling challenge!

I'm a late joiner to the group and work and family commitments limit me to only joining the cycle for stages 2,3 and 4. This is probably a good thing as I had to wait for the end of the rugby season before I could shed my winter coat and start training.

My father died 18 years ago from Bowel Cancer and the memory of him, plus the increased genetic risk (thankfully I am still in the all clear, from recent tests), means that Bowel & Cancer Research is a cause with a special significance.

Although only riding a quarter of the total distance, the challenge of getting from zero miles at the end of April to 260+ miles in 3 days in early-June is one that I'm very focused on conquering, as is raising funds for this special cause.
