My story

[p]In August 2021 I will attempt to break the record for the fastest circumnavigation of the British coastline by bicycle. That's 4802 miles in less than 22 days. While this represents a big challenge in itself, I have a degenerative eye condition, Retinitis Pigmentosa, making me only partially sighted.[/p][p]This attempt will see me riding for 18 hours a day in all conditions through darkness and daylight, with a narrow field of sight dubbed 'tunnel vision'. More than just a record attempt, this is a mission to prove the impossible is possible, inspire others and raise money for the 1.5 million sufferers of RP around the world with co-fundraiser and friend, Daniel Seffens, [/p][p]Your support means the world. All donations will be split between two charities close to my heart, RNIB and Save the Children.[/p][p]For more info check out www.gavintowerscycling.com[/p][p][i]RNIB provide support and advice to the over two million people living with sight loss in the UK. They give practical and emotional support to help them face the future with confidence and campaign for a more inclusive society, where there are no barriers to people with sight loss[/i].[/p][p][i]Save the Children fights every single day for children’s futures. They’re dedicated to tackling problems like pneumonia, hunger and protecting children in war, along with supporting children here in the UK who are currently facing food poverty, a lack of essential items and learning opportunities. Every child should get to make their mark on the world and build a better future for us all.[/i][/p][p][br][/p]

Great effort buddy, well done to you and the team. Unlucky on missing out on the record. I'm guessing the wain is delighted that she still remains the only record holder in the family and won't be slow to remind you about it 🤣
