About

I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer five years ago, with a PSA of 28.9 and a Gleason score of 9.
Hormone and radio-Tomotherapy followed but eventually ceased to be effective and I was put into ‘Palliative Care’. So, I decided to do one big challenge whilst I could and planned a cycle ride from the Channel to the Mediterranean (over 1,000 miles and 40,000 ft. of climbing).
I worked at getting cycling fit and learned proper cycling technique. Then, I had a very lucky meeting which resulted in the chance of radical prostatectomy using the ‘Da Vinci’ robot.
Given the opportunity of surgery I found that I could not abandon my plan to cycle across France. It had become too important to me. I realized that it had given me new purpose, something big to plan and occupy my mind with an achievable challenge.And so it was that I became quite fit before my surgery and I worked hard to return to fitness as quickly as possible after it. Six weeks after surgery I swam, ten weeks after surgery I got back on my bike and nineteen weeks after surgery I set off across France.

Event details

cycle to the moon

Our latest target is to complete a ride from Biggleswade to Thetford on the 20th June 2018. We have decided that it would be a good idea if we could raise money, with your help for a Charity and have chosen 'Tackle Prostate Cancer' and their 'cycle to the moon' campaign. Something that we all believe in and recognise is that early detection is so important in the fight against this cancer.
