Jon and Vicky RideLondon for LDA

Jon says "I have Had Lyme disease for 9 years. It has been a mental and physical battle for me and my family over the many years.  It has been a challenge to do physical exercise because of lyme isease attacking my body in different ways.

I caught Lyme disease cross country running training to do my first iron man. The lack of knowledge from the GP delayed my diagnosis.

I had years of not being able to ride a bicycle due to my body not being able to support myself.After lots of rehab in a rehab centre with hydro, I was able to ride a recumbent bicycle. After not giving up I was able to get back on 2 wheels with the support of my friends and family.I have had some dark moments in my journey.

Due to the love and response I have received  over the many years, it is going to be a delight to ride this 100 miles with the most supportive wife and friend I could ever imagine, knowing how much she *****ng  hates cycling!! Lol"
