My story

[p]2 years comes around very quickly. The last challenge was almost the end of me. If anyone wants to lose 10kg in 5 days then simply don't eat and cycle 200km a day.[/p][p]I'm no Grand Tour rider so have decided to condense the challenge into one long ride this year. We will depart from Constantine Bay in Cornwall on Friday 21st June and aim to arrive in Oxted 24 hours later - some 450km with no overnight stop.[/p][p]This cycle will be the fourth I have undertaken in memory of my brother Nick who passed away, almost unbelievably, over 5 years ago. The 'over 50 club' of [b][i][u]ROB MOIR, ANDY BENNETT, [/u][/i][/b]and once again domestique extraordinaire [b][i][u]ALAN 'ARCHIE' DENNISON[/u] [/i][/b]have very kindly agreed to join me.[/p][p]Just so everyone knows why I do this:[/p][p]Pancreatic cancer is the toughest cancer to diagnose, treat and survive.[/p][p]1 in 4 people won't survive a month. 3 in 4 won't survive for a year.[/p][p]Pancreatic Cancer UK fund research, provide support and campaign to take on this tough cancer together.[/p][p]Please donate whatever you can. No amount is too big or small.[/p][p]Thank you.[/p][p]Jon[/p][p][br][/p]
