Team story

[p]We are an 15 man team of amateur cyclists!; Lee Rycraft, Jeroen Been, Simon Green, Matthew Heywood, Nick Gainey, Darren Brooks, Adam Cloke, Craig Smith, Kris Baldy, Nick Jones, Richard Neighbour, Ben Winstanley, Justyn Rowe, Rob Fox and Jaspaul Matharu.[/p][p]On the 21st September 2018 we will all embark on a 280 mile ride from York to Bath, over 3 days,to raise money and awareness for Cancer Research and the lesser known illness of Dystonia (Dystonia is an incurable and disabling neurological movement disorder that affects more than 70,000 people in the UK).[/p][p]The group are all close friends of Lee Rycraft, whose mother Karen Rycraft, has been through a difficult period with a rare form of tonsil/throat Cancer 3 times in the last 4 years. During the same period Karen has also been challenged by Dystonia.[/p][p]Through out the entire process Karen has been an insipration. Not only has she been challenged by the illness but she has spent time with the healthcare professionals in an effort to enhance awareness and further research into both these debilitating conditions.[/p][p]You do not get 15 friends with busy family lives from different ends of the country together for a 280 mile, 3 day bike ride without good reason and that reason sadly, is that most of us have been affected by Cancer in some way.[/p][p]Simon Green will be riding for his Mother Jenny who is currently in the middle of a challenging period with Cancer.[/p][p]Nick Gainey will be riding for his Grandad Roy Gainey who sadly passed away from the disease.[/p][p]Jaspaul Matharu will be riding for his Father Pete who sadly passed away this year.[/p][p]Kris Baldy will be riding for his wife Kelly who has been through a challenging time with Cancer and is now Cancer free.[/p][p]Nick Jones will be riding in memory of his Grandad Eric, Uncle David and University friend Jon.[/p][p]Justyn Rowe will be riding for his Mother In Law Jan Ryan who has been through a challenging time with Cancer and is now Cancer free.[/p][p]The staggering statistic is that 1 in 2 of us will suffer with Cancer in our lifetime. [/p][p]All those affected by Cancer or Dystonia are our inspiration for the ride.[/p][p]Credit for coming up with the crazy idea to ride from York to Bath goes to our crazy Dutch friend Jeroen![/p][p]The ride will start at the York Minster beside the statue of Contantine The Great and end at the Roman Baths. Picking up as many Roman towns as possible on the way down.[/p][p]Any support that you can pledge to help us raise money and awareness for these charities will be warmly received.....those hills will be a whole lot easier if we have hit our fundraising target!!![/p][p]Thank you.[/p][p][br][/p]
