My story

[p][b]*1500 miles in 16 days*[/b][/p][p]Hi All, thank you for coming to my page.[/p][p]In May 2019, I will be cycling the length and breadth of the UK from John O'Groats right down to Land's End via Essex and Pembrokeshire! Along the way I will be visiting all 8 of Yacht Havens' UK marinas, boatyards and dry stacks, averaging 100 miles per day over 16 days. [/p][p]I will be doing this mainly unassisted, staying in B&Bs and carrying all my other kit with me on the bike. Although I like to think that I keep myself relatively active, this is a massive undertaking that is becoming more daunting as I get nearer to the start date. You can read more about the challenge along with regular blogs about how I’m getting on with training and during the ride on our website, [url=http://www.yachthavens.com/BosunBikesBritain]www.yachthavens.com/BosunBikesBritain[/url][/p][p]I am hoping to raise as much money as possible along the way for [url=https://www.cancerresearchuk.org]Cancer Research UK[/url] and [url=https://www.oakhavenhospice.co.uk/]Oakhaven Hospice (Lymington)[/url]. Multiple members of my own family have won and lost battles with [i]'the big C'[/i] and it seems that everyone you speak to knows someone that has been affected by this disease. If there is anything we can do to try and come up with a cure for it then I think we should. [/p][p]I am taking over two weeks off of work to do this and am having to go through more training than I have ever done. I would urge you to give, as much or as little as you can, for this great cause. I will be literally putting my body on the line, pushing it to a point it has never gone before, all for this amazing cause, and I hope you can give a little bit in return. [/p][p]Thanks to my sponsors: [url=https://salmarine.com/]SAL Marine[/url] and [url=https://www.davecrawfordmarine.co.uk/]Dave Crawford Marine[/url].[/p][p]Thank you![/p][p]Matt. [/p]
