I've raised £16500 for Parkinson's UK and Cancer Research UK by organising challenges friends that took part have raised a further £8000.I want to inspire people to push themself beyond what they think they're capable of. It's amazing how good it makes you feel about yourself when you've pushed your own boundaries. Others can see it's a REAL challenge and are all the more likely to support your good cause.I cycled from Land's End - John O'Groats in 2004 for Parkinson's UK and wrote a book about it. A few weeks ago I got a mail from Rick he'd considered doing the same thing for a few years his wife bought him my book - I just got this email:Just thought I'd drop you a line to say 'I made it!' I finished my BIG bike ride from Lands' End to John O'Groats the Friday before last (8th July.) Thank you for the inspiration and of course the sponsorship.- We have one life..
