I have been a Firefighter for 24 years in Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service. During this time I have had the great honour and privilege of serving alongside some of the finest Firefighters and Support staff from across Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service. Now I get to ride with them for 10 days in September 2020, why?

For me It’s simple!!!!!!!!!!!

A dedicated bunch of friends/Firefighters focussed and  committed to raising awareness around mental health and wellbeing, by cycling from Lands End to John O Grotes. Everyday during the challenge we will be delivering keys messages around maintaining personal wellbeing, as well as our own personal accounts and emotions from each day as we travel the whole of the UK.

Approx 1000 miles, climbing roughly 50,000ft over 10 days. Our goal is to Raise £50,000-£100,000 for the Firefighters Charity. 

Supported by our friends and colleagues across the UK Fire and Rescue community, we will cycle this once in a life time, epic journey.

Join us, #TheLongestRideTeam as we prepare for and complete September’s challenge.

Support us, Donate to the cause, Like and Share our posts and spread the word to everyone.

Help us remove the stigma associated with Mental Health
