My story

[p]Dear all,[/p][p]On Sunday 4th August, I will be cycling 100 miles (argh) for the Prudential Ride 100 London to Surrey, to raise money for Camden Carers Service (CCS). [/p][p]CCS works to provide a reliable, supportive service for improving the quality of life, health and wellbeing for all carers in the borough of Camden. Some of you will know that this charity is very close to mine and my family’s heart. We are all closely involved with, supportive of and supported by the services this charity offers to carers of individuals that live with certain challenges. These challenges can be mental, psychological, physical, or caused by old age, and sometimes all of the above. [/p][p]This personal connection to CCS and what it signifies for us is why I am doing the Ride 100 and why I would really, really appreciate your support in raising money – something I rarely ask for in the name of sport and charity. In the very near, looming future, lie 100 miles of hills to be cycled, between London and Surrey, in less than a month (omg). Many of you know I have a bit of a love hate relationship with cycling – I love how long rides make me feel (the golden fitness years of my early 20s have well and truly gone though…) but at the same time I seem to fall off / crash / smash at a worryingly high rate for someone that’s been cycling to work daily for the last 9 years. Fellow cyclists still sidle up to me to offer me cycling lessons (best case scenario) or to share somewhat less helpful and more castigating epiphanies (ugh). This ride will be my longest and most challenging probably ever, with training and fitness levels starting at zero. So, any support you can offer would be greatly appreciated and will help spur me on at those painful uphill points! [/p][p]Now for the more important part. Across the UK today alone, 6.5 million people are carers, supporting a loved one who needs help, enabling them to make the most out of life, making an enormous contribution to society and saving the economy billions of pounds. Every day, 6,000 new people become carers. That’s 1 in 8 adults who care, unpaid, for family and friends. Within our lifetime, there will be 9 million carers. These stats were certainly a huge surprise to me. Fortunately, our loved ones are living longer with illness or disability, and that is partially because more and more of us are looking after them. Whether round-the-clock in our own home, or a weekly call with someone at the other end of the phone – caring can have a huge effect on us, our lives and our plans. Often, it can be an extremely positive and rewarding experience. At times, it can be at a detriment and be totally draining. [/p][p]Caring is simply part of being a good human. Yet many carers are stretched to the limit – juggling care with work, family life, or even their own mental or physical health. [/p][p]Charities like Camden Carers Service support those caring for those that need care – those that may not know how or where to get help, and feel isolated, lonely, stressed, anxious about what may happen next to their loved ones, maybe even guilty for feeling like they need support themselves. CCS offers wellbeing, advice, activities, a community and a voice for those looking after their loved ones in Camden.[/p][p]Please support as generously as you can and want, and feel free to share the link with anyone you know who may want to do the same :)[/p][p]Recommendations for playlists and podcasts also very welcome – no idea how long this race will take me, but I am guessing at least 8 hours, so entertainment to load on my phone will be needed!!
