I took up cycling again in my early 50s after a 25 year break and wanted to put this hobby to good use. So I have decided to do a marathon cycle ride for charity. African Vision Malawi (formerly known as the Landirani Trust) is a small but effective charity which has been doing vital work in Malawi for around eight years now. I have chosen to support this charity because they are making a very real difference to the lives of many orphans and vulnerable adults in Malawi. The challenge is to raise £20,000 to enable them to build a Training Village.

Event details


I am going to cycle round the coast of England and Wales to raise money for African Vision Malawi. This money will go towards building a training will make an amazing difference to the lives of many people in this impoverished region of Malawi for many years to come. I will be starting in Looe, Cornwall and heading anti-clockwise around the country. This will be a total of 77 days, including rest days. I will be covering around 3,750 kilometres and will cycle up over 23,000 metres, which is 2.6 times the height of Mt. Everest! I will be writing a blog when I can so do follow me
Please pass this on to friends, family and colleagues to support me in this mammoth undertaking. Thank you for your support.
