My story

[p]I've signed up to cycle from London to Brighton and to make it more challenging, I’m going to ride a penny farthing.[/p][p]If you know me, you will know that I enjoy riding my penny farthing but never more than 5 or 10 miles in a day so this route of 55 miles will be both challenging and painful but most importantly should help raise some money for the PSPA charity. Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a neurological condition caused by the premature loss of nerve cells in certain parts of the brain.[/p][p]The condition gets its name because:[/p][p]· Progressive – it steadily worsens over time[/p][p]· Supranuclear – it damages the nuclei that control eye movements.[/p][p]· Palsy – it causes weakness.[/p][p]Like many other chronic conditions, there is no cure for PSP. However, many of the symptoms can be managed to help people achieve the best possible quality of life.[/p][p]The wife of my previous employer, Janet Hardwill suffers from PSP and I am hoping to help her raise awareness and money for the charity that helps improve the lives of people suffering from this condition.[/p][p]Anything you can donate is massively appreciated, please also share with your friends and family about this charity.[/p][p]To find out more, go to [url=https://pspassociation.org.uk/]https://pspassociation.org.uk/[/url][/p][p] [/p][p]Just to say a massive thank you for your sponsorship and support, it helped me keep cycling on Sunday and despite falling off fairly early in the ride I kept going! 55 miles on a bike with no gears and no brakes, definitely one of the more ridiculous events I've done!

Hi Seb, saw you at the beginning of the ride. I struggled on my carbon many-geared bike. Can’t imagine the challenge in that course no brakes, no gears and sitting way off the ground! You’re the talk of the FB Groups & well deserved. Hope you’re ok toda!
