I have taken my "too big for a bicycle body" on a few two wheel adventures over the years but nothing quite like this. Over 2,500 miles from Maine to Florida with 74,265ft of climbing...in 30 days.
I am covering all the costs of the ride myself so every penny raised will go to supporting a brave young man, Alister Bailey, as he battles Multiple Sclerosis. Diagnosed at 30 years old, a year after he married Gemma, Alister has been fighting the disease for the last nine years and experienced some encouraging results from his first round of stem cell treatment. He is embarking on his second round of mesenchymal stem cell treatment at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama in November 2021 as the treatment is not available in the UK.
His son Ronnie is now seven and when he was told about the treatment he asked; "Daddy, does this mean you will no longer have wobbly legs?"
I can't think of a better reason to inflict some pain on my body than to support Alister, Ronnie and Gemma in their hope of having as normal life as possible and fighting MS. I would appreciate any support you can give me in helping ensure Alister gets the treatment he needs.
