My story

[p]Hi and thanks for visiting my page. I cycle between 10 and 15,000 miles each year and have recently published a book, Passione Celeste about my adventures.[/p][p] [/p][p] I’ll be giving a proportion of the income from sales of my book to Green Light Trust (GLT) which I am very proud to be a Trustee of. GLT does fantastic work in the East of England by helping people facing profound health, education and wellbeing challenges. Using the natural outdoor environment GLT helps these people overcome the challenges to enhance and enrich their lives, lifestyles and livelihoods. This complements the work of mainstream health and education services who often lack the resources or expertise to support such people effectively. GLT’s achievements have been widely recognised with several regional and national awards. [/p][p] [/p][p]In 2018 I'll be riding from Los Angeles to Boston (3,500 miles) to raise more money for Green Light and to have some fun along the way. I plan to write another book about my journey. You can read more about my cycling adventures on my blog at www.captaincentury.com[/p][p] [/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
