About Paul

After 25 years and now retired, it has been great to get back on a bike and appreciate how good cycling benefits your health and well being.
I have thoroughly enjoyed getting back in the saddle to explore the local area and cycle paths. In doing so, I feel so much better about myself, both physically and mentally, I've also lost a lot of unnecessary weight.
In my younger days, I always wanted to do the coast to coast run but never got round to doing so.
So, never too late, I am going to attempt the C2C both ways during September as part of the Cancer UK Cycle 300 Challenge.
Details available via this link:-
fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/pauls-cycle-300-fundraising-page-277Any donation, no matter how small, will be appreciated and help towards my target of £1000.
If you prefer not to use the official Facebook link or the official Giving Page, please send me a private message, I can help you with the donation, either as a named donor or remaining anonymous. Any donation of any amount will be appreciated it all helps.
Apart from cycling my other passion in life is photography. Being out on the bike allows me to enjoy these two passions together. It's then great to be able to share the rides and photos with others using Komoot.
Happy cycling everyone thanks for visiting my page👍😉🚲

    1. After taking a bad slip last outing

      great to get back out on the bike after the recent freeze up.

      To get to Waters Meet you need to get your bike up/down 4 steep steps to get over the flood defence wall. Its then its a short footpath from the steps.
