Lyme Disease Action
Jon and Vicky are acutely aware of the challenges which face those who are affected by Lyme and their families. Jon has had Lyme for many years, this cruel disease has affected our whole family in significant life changing ways. We want to contribute to the continuing research and evidence which is developing so that we can make a positive from this negative experience.
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"
