Some challenges are not if. They are when.
And now it is my turn.
Welcome to the 2017 edition of the Ride Across Britain, where over just 9 days in September I will ride 969 miles, averaging over 100 miles a day. Riding from the hills of Cornwall on day one, to the isolated beauty of the Highlands on day nine. Whatever the weather!
And I am not just doing it for me. I am doing it to raise funds for the Princes Trust which creates life changing opportunities for young people.
Over the past 10 years the trust has returned £1.4 billion in value to society through their help for disadvantaged young people. Through your donations they can offer free programmes that give young people the practical and financial support they need to stabilise their lives.
