First Cycling Sportive

“One lung, One life, 100 miles”

Well not quite 100, but today I cycled 54miles, 4450ft in 4hrs 38! It was my first sportif “cycle for Amy”, which included a hilly ride up brickworks & the cat & fiddle! Part of the training plan for Ride 100! Thanks to Stephen Colley (Kath Colley) for his support to get me round and Alison Staley & kids for their support & encouragement. Many times during the pain today, I thought how fortunate I am to be in the position to complete this challenge and that I have gone through much worse pain! Just over a year ago, I struggled to walk down the drive after chemo and 18 months ago I needed the help of a Zimmer frame in hospital. Very Proud moment today!

“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible”. Francis of Assisi

I will be sharing my fundraising page this week for the Bike100 to spread awareness, and inspire others.

Never give up on your hopes and dreams!
