Alex Franks 12 hour NHS Zwift Shift

My name is Alex Franks. I am 14 and I LOVE cycling.  I race for Hillingdon Slipstreamers on Road and Track and I am part of the British Cycling Talent Programme.  Normally, I would be busy racing around the country at this time of year but of course, everything is on hold because of Corona Virus.  It hasn't stopped me training though. I have been getting out for my daily exercise on my bike and also training hard on Zwift to keep up my fitness.

When I saw what Geraint Thomas is doing I decided to take part so I could put my training to good use and do my bit for the NHS.  When I was a baby I had feeding and breathing difficulties and the NHS were there to help me. And I have an aunt and uncle who work really hard in the NHS. They are all doing an amazing job at the moment and deserve our help.

 I'm raising money in aid of NHS Charities Together /Association of NHS Charities and every donation will help. Thank you very much for your contribution.
