My story

[p]On the 11th & 12th of May 2019 I will be taking on the most colourful, challenging and hopefully enjoyable cycling event of the calendar, raising money for the Outward Bound Trust.[/p][p]The Outward Bound Trust unlocks the potential in young people regardless of their financial or social circumstances through powerful, challenging outdoor adventures.This gave me at the age of 13 my first taste of independence and adventure! Not with standing the fact that I was dreadfully home sick and discovered my fear of heights I still remember it like yesterday and if I could advise that thirteen year old Richard Benwell I would tell him "do not hesitate to go again, this will change your outlook on life and give you a confidence that you did not previously have!".[/p][p]A mere 300km of open roads, testing climbs, the great British weather, more climbs, saddle sores and then camping overnight with snoring comrades at the halfway point. It’ll be tough, but another challenge I have set myself before my next multiple of ten birthday![/p][p]So, if you share my belief in the benefit that the Outward Bound Trust brings each new generation, I would greatly appreciate your support.[/p][p][br][/p]
