Cycling for a Cure

Fighting Cancer With Class & Style

Coast to coast, 140 miles in two days

The idea to cycle the coast to coast was a comment by Lou, which quickly grew legs. A group of 14 emergency service personnel, mostly from Notts Fire and Rescue (NFRS) but also including Notts Police, Princes Trust and Notts Fire Chief Mr Buckley will be undertaking the challenge.

With planning well under way, training plans assigned via the amazing NFRS PTI Charlotte Hasim, the 146 miles we’re going to ride has gone from a comment in the office to now a reality, and worryingly only months away….(see the countdown clock at the bottom of the web site)

We decided to ride the 146 miles over two days. Why you ask? Well we thought it may get people inclined to donate more, with the first day being 75 miles of Lake District hills, hills oh and more hills.

We have a great support crew, including NFRS Prevention team manager Mr Paul Gair, District Prevention officer Tracey Straw, who is already getting excited as she will be driving the Chiefs car whilst he cycles…
Hopefully, we will be able to enjoy the scenery, appreciate the view at the top of each hill, and not be gasping for air….we are reliably informed we have oxygen on board for the summits…phew!!

Sadly, everyone on this trip has been affected in some way be it either directly or indirectly by Cancer. Being motivated and passionate about the causes we are raising money for, we would love to exceed out team target of £10,000! This can be easily achieved if everyone we came into contact could dip in to their pockets and donate just £1….happy donating everyone.

I think I mentioned in a previous blog that I wanted to write up beat, humorous and light hearted type snap shots of life with secondary breast cancer. Sadly and disappointingly at times that is proving rather a challenge, whilst not every day is doom and gloom, and I...
