About me

I came to NZ once before and I absolutely fell in love with the country, people and the nature so I decided to come back! Obviously why make it easy for youself if you can make it dificult and sign up for a race on the other side of the globe! I'll be coming all the way from the UK to race. I've never raced in my life, I never even owned a road bike in my life prior to this event but hey it's never too late to pick up something new!
Tour of New Zealand will be a tough one but I'm keen to take on the challenge and happy to be able to raise a few kiwi dollars on the way!

I decided to ride for Children Cancer Foundation as I truly belive the kids are our future and we should try to do everything to make their lives better. They are so vulnerable and need all our support we can give when the news strike. So I will do the hard work of cycling 700km in 7 days and all you gotta do is show the kids some money :)

Many thanks

Chosen charity

Child Cancer Foundation

Every week more than three New Zealand families are told the devastating news that their child has cancer. The Child Cancer Foundation provides practical, financial and emotional support to each child and their family, from that terrible time of diagnosis, throughout treatment and beyond. The support we provide is tailored to help combat the family's day-to-day challenges, allowing them to stay strong and together, and focus on the only thing that matters - their very sick child.
