As some of you may remember, Simon is no stranger to "Challenges", from trekking the Inca Trail in Peru, scaling the High Atlas Mountains and tackling the lower reaches of Annapurna, to a cycle challenge across the Sinai Desert. Closer to home he has cycled London to Brussels, via Amsterdam, trekked and cycled through the night. He was also part of a team of 7, who where the first, and only he thinks to, with a Tetraplegic team member, Cycle, Canoe and Climb Snowdon as part of a Triathlon style event, keeping up with double Paralympian, Stephen Osborne, made this one of the tougher challenges. He recalls keeping up with Steve on his hand-cycle down Llanberis Pass was one of the scariest rides ever!     

His latest challenge is to cycle "1,000 Miles in May" (27th April - 25th May), unlike most of his other events where he was part of a team or group, he is doing this alone, so will need to provide his own motivation, although helping out 4 year old twins, Charlie and Freddie, he says, will provide plenty. Following an early arrival at just 30 weeks, they spent the first 7 weeks of their lives in NICU, Charlie was diagnosed with cerebral palsy (quadriplegic) soon after birth, Freddie (diplegic) shortly before his 2nd Birthday.

You can support Simon, well Charlie and Freddie, here, your help, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated and go along way to helping the young lives of the twins.

Simon hopes to reach his target with a mix of commuting and longer weekend rides.
