William Smith

I work as a GP in Woolpit in Suffolk and met Charles recently at a dinner party. We started talking about cycling as rather sad middle aged men do. He mentioned this challenge. He must have seen my eyes light up. My last foray into this sort of thing was over 10 years ago when I was rather foolishly persuaded to do an Ironman triathlon. My wife nearly left me and I snapped my achilles tendon a year later.

Bowel cancer is extremely common and very treatable, especially if picked up early. I do feel it is an extremely worthy cause to be cycling for.
