3 weeks to go!

Saturday 5th

Where is the time going? In three weeks time I will be embarking on my 1000 miles in 24 hour endurance ride. 

I am blown away by the support I have received so far from donors and long may it continue. After an afternoon of fun up at Oxford Airport with the guys from JMI and John Blackwell behind the lens, I've had a great amount of support from the business aviation industry. 

Preparations are going well and the bike is booked for a service shortly. I've started boxing up tools and other consumables in the event of any necessary quick repairs. 

On the day I will have two people in the support van following me and keeping everyone updated via this blog, a dedicated website (www.theretrorider.com) and Instagram. 

Please spread the word and let's see how much we can raise for such a good cause. 

 

Why am I doing this???

Wednesday 26th

So the justification for me riding 1000 miles in 24 hours. 

 

Over the past three years as a family, we have had 4 members diagnosed with cancer, 3 of which were prostate. 

 

This is why to me it is such an important cause. 

 

I am really grateful to all those who are able to donate.

And I will ride 1000 miles

Thursday 20th

Hello!

As this year is going to be a little different I have changed my goal. 

On the weekend of 26th/27th September, I will be riding 1000 miles from John O'Groats to Lands End in a 24-hour window for the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride. I certainly hope this will aid in raising money for such a good cause.

Planning has begun and I have secured a team to join me in a support van to:

a) provide necessary support and motivation 
b) keep everyone online up to date with my progress across various social media platforms. 

I'll keep you posted!

I'm Riding Solo for Men's Health in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

Tuesday 18th

On Sunday the 27th of September, I'm riding solo in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride with fellow men and women across the globe to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health on behalf of Movember.

Men die on average 6 years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons. The number of men that are suffering is growing, and we need to do something about that. So, before I press my tweed and polish my boots, I'm asking you to join me in raising funds and awareness for these causes by donating what you can for this meaningful cause and to help the men we love, live happier and healthier lives.
