My personnel cycle challenge up to 600 miles.A fundraising project by Mark Winterbourne
In the summer of 1983 when I was a mere 15 years of age I was diagnosed with a Brain Tumour. At a time when surgery was in its experimental phase and scanners were few and far between my life was in someone else's hands.
I survived two mammoth operations and came out fighting. A "can do" attitude .... regardless of being told NO ..... let's kick the ass out of this awful disease ..... like now!
10 years ago... in December 2007 I lost a brave friend to this very disease. He fell fighting an awful battle and it was a day I never forget. Chris Hildred.... this one is for you buddy...
So what am I doing? Well... Im' cycling from Bradford to Its twin town of Roubaix in France. Then.... back again. Almost 1000km in 6 days with the crew from Bradford Cycling Club.... A route that takes in Bradford to Hull... a ferry and a ride through Holland and Belgium in to France and Bradfords twin town
So.... I would really love your support.... I am not asking for a lot.. Just a little something to help these charities and .give me physiological strength when my legs send signals to my brain saying they can't pedal anymore... the reply will come.SHUT UP LEGS
