On 19 July 2014 Michael will be riding solo from South to North Wales so he is back in training in preparation for the challenge.
The ride over 4 days will cover some 220 miles and as told by cyclists is “a little bumpy” as it goes over three mountain ranges (the Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia) with over 12,000 feet of climb.
The route for the ride is a recognised tough ride starting in Chepstow via Abergavenny, Rhayader, Machynlleth, Criccieth and will finish at Llandudno pier for a well earned ice cream!
He will then be joined by Sue May the Chairman of JBTC and they will together climb to the summit of Snowdon, the highest mountain in England & Wales at over 3,500 feet! This challenge also cannot be under estimated for Sue given her own brain tumour story which is detailed on the website.
If you can help, please sponsor the ride (and climb), your kind donations will significantly support the efforts to employ its professional support worker and the work of the charity generally.
