Along with my Bombay Bicycle Club team mates I will be tackling 76 miles (122km) of hills – with 1,897m of climbing (thats a lot!) - starting and finishing at Bovingdon Airfield, Hertfordshire.
I like to set myself a tough goal each year. Last year was the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 (with less climbing over a longer route) and I finished in just over 6 hours.
This ride however will be a real test, but what will spur me on is that Prostate Cancer UK is researching ways to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. Over 10000 men die of prostate cancer each year. That's more than 1 per hour!
Money spent on research has already contributed to the following achievements:
- Developed a new treatment for early prostate cancer
- Set up a prostate cancer research centre to nurture talented researchers
- Revealed that African Caribbean men are more likely to develop prostate cancer
