Q. What are you most looking forward to about The Tour 21?

Challenging myself to do it and seeing my daughter at the finish in Paris.

The camaraderie it will create within the group who will become a team and of course raising monies and awareness of leukaemia.

I’m looking forward to what will be a challenge of a lifetime, however to be able to be part of a team that are going to raise over a million pounds for Cure Leukaemia will make me feel that I have done something to help change a lot of people’s lives!.

The fact we’re all raising money for such a great cause will be at the forefront of this ride.

Followed by the fact that I am getting to ride the most iconic route in the cycling calendar. I’m riding the Tour de France!

Q. What are you most looking forward to about The Tour 21?

My motivation to help the fight against this devastating disease is the loss of my father exactly 30 years ago to Leukaemia.

My hope is to move past this loss which occurred at a very young age and has continued to affect me since.

Taking on a challenge as significant as this will help others affected by Leukaemia and also help me to move forward too. My love of cycling has assisted me both mentally and physically over the years so combined with the chance to help support Geoff and the Tour 21 Team makes this an incredible challenge.

The mental challenge. I think it will be horrible physically, but your mind always gives up before your body.

Q. What are you most looking forward to about The Tour 21?

I am relatively new to cycling having only picked it up in March 2020, but I am absolutely in love with it and can’t wait to start training hard for next year and begin my fundraising for this fantastic charity.

Q. What are you most looking forward to about The Tour 21?

I am riding the Tour de France to raise money for Cure Leukaemia for three reasons.

First and foremost, to help fund the excellent work done by the charity. Second, to challenge myself. Third, just to be able to ride it – for a cycling fan like myself, it is the ultimate.
