Born again cyclist.

Inspired by the likes of Wiggins, Froome and the Yates brothers coupled with the health and fitness benefits, I found a sport that could give me what I needed no matter at what age. Cycling has enabled me to satisfy my physical and mental needs without breaking the bank.

Now retired cycling has rekindled my passion for the great outdoors wether riding solo or in a social group.

The opportunity to complete a 100 mile ride is every cyclists milestone and to do it for charity is an extra bonus.

In order to compete in the very first Birmingham Velo I recently joined a local club to get used to riding in a group although on a very much smaller scale.

It’s an absolute privilege to raise funds for a very worthy cause like the Property For Kids charity in this years Velo, the first of many I hope bring it on!!!
