Governments should fund medical research properly so that research workers with secure jobs can concentrate on their research. Instead, we have to do this.

My Story

8 Aug 2019

This October, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to raise funds for the Children's Medical Research Institute to continue their work into the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Every time I do this I am reminded of the old anti-war poster that read "It will be a great day when schools get all the money they need and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy a new bomber". Same goes for medical research: it should be funded properly by government and not be reliant on bake sales, or bicycle challenges. But it is not, and so we cycle.

Please support my challenge by making a donation through my fundraising page. Together, we can save little lives.

Thanks for your support.

  • Another free 6 km from the GPS
    14 Oct 2019

    This morning my predictable 6.3 km ride to work was clocked at 12.2 km.

    So I've upped my target by another 6 km, to allow for all this bonus distance apparently ridden.

    Congratulations to all the extinction rebellion folk for their fantastic work over the past week.

    That 13.4 km ride it clocked this morning was exactly the same route it clocked as 6.5 km yesterday. I'll adjust my target to allow for the bonus 7 km I never rode ;-)
