The journey from London to Paris to support Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research has started

Today I launch my fundraising in support of beating blood cancers.

I am really excited that I have embarked on this journey.  I am racing for Leukemia & Lymphoma Research to beat Blood Cancers, for my wife and for all people that have had or know someone that have or have had blood cancer.  What I have to suffer through during the bicycle race from London to Paris and what I go through to prepare for it is nothing compared to what Teresa and all cancer patients have and are going through both physically and mentally.  This Giant Defy Carbon road bike is going to help me. My training started around Christmas inside with a Turbo Trainer in front of the TV.  As the weather got better, I started biking outside.  I have gradually built up strength and increased both the speed and distance that I am cycling.

I am biking 500 km from London to Paris the 17-21 of September.
