2020 has been the most difficult year for me.. Not just because of COVID19 but because of the loss of my big brother. I was never able to give him the send off he truly deserved.
I've never had to deal with the grief and sorrow I have felt this year. It has thrown me into the unknown. I went from go happy go lucky Dee to the complete opposite, whereby I didn't even recognise myself. I'd spend days on my own, sat in the dark...
Eventually I found riding my bike brought me peace and freedom. This may not work for everyone but it worked for me.
Along with my own battle this year, I have witnessed many people in my community friends and family struggle with mental health. It's not in my nature to sit and do nothing. I want to raise awareness, I want to speak out and I want my fellow man to know it is OK not to be OK.
I want to raise money for ANDYSMANCLUB to enable them to continue their journey in supporting men across the country and to continue savings lives!
I will be completing a bike ride from Leeds to Liverpool via the canal - 127 MILES!!!
Absolutely any donations will be fantastic!!!
