My story

[p]Thank you for visiting my fundraising page as I prepare to take on Ride Across Britain - a nine day, 980 mile bike ride from Land's End to John O'Groats. And whilst pictures make it look like a social Sunday spin, it requires the equivalent cardio output to running 9 consecutive marathons, and the same leg power as climbing Mount Everest twice.[/p][p]That said, I absolutely love cycling so an experience like RAB is a dream for me - and although signing up with only 16 weeks to go was daunting, training around the Northumberland coast and countryside is definitely good prep! I'm proud to be riding for Team Deloitte, and to be supporting three of our WorldClass charities - [url=https://www.mind.org.uk/]Mind,[/url] [url=https://www.scope.org.uk/]Scope[/url], and [url=https://www.princes-trust.org.uk/]Prince's Trust[/url]. All three charities do amazing work, and with the pandemic exacerbating the already shocking levels of inequality in society, they are needed now more than ever. [/p][p]Mind is a charity particularly close to my heart. Cycling is one of the things that helps me maintain good mental health and resilience, but having experienced depression and anxiety for years, I know first-hand what a huge difference it makes to have unwavering support versus feeling alone, and to be shown care and respect as you navigate mental health problems versus being made to feel that you are the problem. Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem, and they campaign to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. [/p][p]Writing this during [url=https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awareness-week]Mental Health Awareness Week[/url] also causes me to reflect on the mental health and wellbeing challenges all of us have faced during the last 12+ months, and the fact there is a greater need than ever for open and inclusive conversations, education and support services.[/p][p]RAB takes place 4 - 12 September this year. Any and all donations - as well as advice and messages of encouragement (both now and during the ride itself!) - will be greatly appreciated. And if you live near the route and fancy coming to say hello during the ride, please let me know! [url=https://www.rideacrossbritain.com/route/]Route - Deloitte Ride Across Britain[/url].[/p][p]Thanks again [/p][p]Em :)[/p][p][br][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charity. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p]
