Rifleman Michael Swain, 21, from 3rd Battalion The Rifles, lost both his legs in an IED explosion in Helmand Province in 2009. He is an incredibly active and determined young man. Despite his injuries, Michael leads a busy life and has taken part in a number of bike rides to raise money for charity and inspire fellow injured service personnel to not give up and to challenge themselves by giving back to the community. Later this year, Michael is taking part in SSAFA Forces Help's Ride of Britain and plans to cycle the entire route, 470 miles from Edinburgh to London, on a hand bike which he learned how to master as part of his rehabilitation. Of his efforts, Michael said: "SSAFA helps so many families and I'm proud to be able to give something back."
