This is my lovely bicycle. Hand-built by Stan Pike in 1976.
In one month's time I'll be using it to cycle from Land's End to John o' Groats with my 14-year-old son. Our journey will be over 1100 miles. To view our cycling blog, visit:
We're hoping to raise money and awareness for Action Duchenne. Action Duchenne is a national charity that aims to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), a severe genetic muscle wasting disease. Due to progressive muscle deterioration, loss of movement occurs, eventually leading to paralysis. The average life expectancy for patients with DMD is around 25.
It's a charity that is close to our hearts – a family we know have two boys who have been diagnosed with Duchenne.
I really don't like asking, but if you'd like to sponsor us, here's a link you can follow:
