I have taken part in the HELP FOR HEROES Cycle Ride from Paris to London in June 2013 covering around 440 miles and have cycled from Belgium to Paris in June 2014 covering around 350 miles. 2015 I did a 2 day ride from Warminster to Windsor.
2014 - The ride will be from Brussels to Mon,
Mons to Arras, Arras to Amiens, Amiens to Compiegne and Compiegne
to Paris to Finish our European ride, finally we will reuturn to
London and meet up with 1000 Hero Riders for our Celebration ride
in to London, with our final service at the Cenotaph. We were
accompanied by the Australians and Canadians and as usual they were
great companions. I rode the whole ride with 4 other great people
all had personal reasons for doing the ride and I salute you all,
James Simmonds, Sara Thorne, Mandy Falloon & Guy Bettesworth.
We are now great friends and on our journey we adopted the name
Team Ted (Help for Heroes Bear I was carrying) and we had many
highs and lows along the way.
This was a big a challenge as last year and will probably hurt even more, but I shouldn't complain as many more people are worse off them me.
2015 - I will be doing the Help for Hero's DIY Ride with Team Ted - 5 of the riders have been with me in the last 2 years on the Battlefield rides and we have now 7 new members who will travel with us from Warminster to Windsor in June so a total of 12 riders all fund raising for H4H
2016 - Ypres to Verdun - June 2016
Target 2014 - We have a target of £2500,
you the public have been great with your generosity its amazing how
you have found that extra pound, as this is the second time I'm
askng for help I understand if I'm asking too much, but every
little helps - Thank You so much.
Where are we going - Starting in Brussels we head for Mons on the first day, then Mons to Arras, Arras to Amiens, Amiens to Compiegne, Compiegne to Paris, followed a transfer to London, meet up with 1000 more cyclists and travel into London for our final service at the Cenotaph and finish up in Horse Guards Parade.
This will be a great challenge with some fantastic people, I must remember to cycle on the right hand side while in Fance I don't want another bad bike accident one is enough
I would like to say thanks all of the Physio's who helped me get back on my feet, I'm not a good patient, Andy Glover and Adrian Parsons - Cheers!
WHY DO THE RIDE - THIS IS WHY

You are raising money for people who have put their lives on the line for you.
You learn so much about yourself and others.
You realise that maybe your life isn't that bad after all.
You will have friends for life.
