We're doing a ride...
This is massive. Not for you, but for us. Two friends, who 1st rode together 3 years ago, up too many hills, with no preparation and only Maoams and the smallest amount of water, are now planning to ride over 220 miles across Italy in 3 days. This means we have to ACTUALLY get fit, ACTUALLY eat properly, spend a horrific amount of time together, and raise a huge amount of money.
But that’s all ok; because this is us starting to realise that, despite loving food and sitting down for most of our lives, we love riding, we love getting fit and, although Suzy wouldn’t admit it, we love spending time together. More importantly, we’re riding to raise money for Mind a charity very close to our hearts.
Both of us have spent more time than we would like experiencing mental health issues, both 1st hand and with friends and loved ones. We know the pain of having to be ‘normal’ when even getting out of bed seems too hard. So we can’t think of a better cause than to help people never have to suffer alone, never have to believe that they are somehow not as good, and can find help to light the darkness.
So we are packing our Maoams and not enough water, we are putting down our crisps, and we are going to do the hardest thing we’ve ever done. You can follow our journey here (if you want to see training updates and cringey videos) and you can donate below. Please help if you can, this really matters.
