None worthy of note to anyone other than me! Personal achievements include riding End to End on a tandem with my sister when my daughter was 4 months old, participating in numerous weekend mountain marathons over the years with my team mate and partner, cycle touring and skiing regularly as a family, and in the distant past, walking and mountaineering trips with my partner to Scotland, the Alps and the Karakoram.
I have enjoyed the occasional day cycling in the Alps, and cycling holidays in Majorca and Lanzarote, but this is a huge challenge and will be more physically demanding than anything I have done before. I like a challenge, and my kids are old enough now so that I can contemplate being away from home without them for a whole weekend. I’m also pleased to be able to support the Bolton Lads’ and Girls’ club which has done such valuable work over the years.
