I'm riding for PROPS in 2019
500 miles in 4 days from Bristol to Bordeaux from 3rd July to 6th July 2019
After a big crash in Majorca in April 2017, I’m back on the bike with a vengeance. I’ve signed up to ride 500 miles in 4 days from Bristol to Bordeaux in July 2019.
I’ll be riding for an amazing charity called PROPS. Based in Fishponds, PROPS provides support and opportunities for adults with learning difficulties. The Bristol to Bordeaux ride, in its 11th year, is the main fundraiser for the charity and my aim is to raise a minimum of £1000 for this wonderful organisation.

I’m working out a fundraising plan for 2019. I’m planning to do some or all of the following:
- Cupcake sales (baked and decorated by my wife Helen)
- A silent auction in March 2019 (if you’d like to donate an auction lot, please let me know)
- Car boot sales
- A cricket silent auction in February 2019 (my son is Gloucestershire CCC captain and will donate various items of kit – new and used)
This is a serious ride and a big challenge, riding 125 miles in one day is hard enough, but to then repeat that for 3 further days makes this a real test of mind and body.
I’ll be working hard in 2019 to get super fit for the ride and along with 60 other riders and support crew of around 20, I’ll be giving my all for PROPS next summer.
If you would like to support me and this amazing charity, my fundraising page is here.
I’d be very grateful for any support you can give,
