Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have various reasons for doing this sponsored bike ride of approx. 512 Miles, which I'll do in early March 2020. 

Firstly to raise money for an important centre that helps people with MS, by making available hyperbaric oxygen therapy -- a treatment that helps thousands of people with MS. I use as too as it helps with my sore knee and all sorts of other things as well (it floods the bloodstream with oxygen and enables the cells to fix themselves).

Secondly, I want to go green. Rather than drone on about global warming I'm changing my lifestyle and using less fossil fuel. Part of this process involved using a bike as my main means of transport, but for this to be feasible I need to practice, practice and practice -- and what better time of year than the coldest season! If I can do it now and I can do it anytime.

I'll ride from Peebles in the south of Scotland to Portsmouth in the south of England, via Chippenham where my kids live, and Portsmouth where the MS centre is. I'm hoping to do the first leg (to Chippenham) in five days and the second bit in two days. 

Start date: 1st of March. I'll try and send updates but not sure I'll have time or energy after 7-10 hours riding per day.

I'll attach a trailer to the back of my Moulton touring bike and bring camping gear so I can stay more or less anywhere, and cook delicious meals on my little camp stove. Maybe I could visit you if you're on my route (get in touch!)

In the future I plan to do a lot more cycle touring so this is very much a test of myself, to see how I can handle the weather and a nomadic lifestyle. I'd also like to show others what are the (psychological) steps needed to travel independently.

Anything you can give will go directly to the Solent MS Therapy Centre in Portsmouth, where I've been getting oxygen therapy for my sore kneee.
