I’ve been a Firefighter with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue for 29 years and I’ve served at various stations within the county.
I’ve seen things that most people will thankfully never see, but due to the nature of the fire service family, there’s always someone to help and talk to.
I enjoy every aspect of being lucky enough to be able to get outside and enjoy “The Great Outdoors”, (especially having the peak district on my doorstep) whether it be cycling, kitesurfing or walking the dogs with my family.
After meeting up and spending a day cycling with the group, I was honoured and privileged when they contacted me and asked me to join the team on this epic adventure.
It’s been on my bucket list for years to ride the length of the UK, so I jumped at the chance.
Some of the reasons for doing this challenge are:-
1. To send a message about The positive impacts of physical exercise for improving mental health.
2. Having the chance again to raise money for the FireFighters Charity
3. To be able to challenge myself with the mental and physical aspects of this adventure and knowing others will benefit from the team’s efforts.
4. Promoting that anything is possible if you keep focused and put your mind to it.
5. Talk about bikes lol.
Please support us in any way you can, every little helps!!!
Take care and hopefully see you out on the road!
