The Plan (2011)

I'm hoping to cycle from John O'Groats to Lands End - in memory of my wife Felicity, to thank God for our life together, and to thank all of you for your tireless support and encouragement along the way.

My journey won't be tireless - in either sense!

My Goal
With your help, I also hope to raise £5,000 for Breast Cancer Campaign.

About Breast Cancer Campaign
We're very fortunate in Britain to have excellent free cancer treatment from the NHS, if ever you or your loved ones should need it. But that treatment is only as good as the research behind it.

BCC funds breast cancer research; its mission, to research the cure. Like cycling from John O' Groats to Lands End, that's a long journey. But I hope we can raise some money to help urge things forward further and faster so that breast cancer treatment and care will be even better in the future - when someone else needs it. What better memorial for Felicity?

Thank God
I can't pretend to understand why Felicity had breast cancer, but I believe that God helped and supported us along a very difficult path. I want to give thanks for that, and for the 31 years of married life that Felicity and I enjoyed together.

Thank YOU
Since you're reading this, you're likely one of the many family members and friends whose support and encouragement over the last three years has been absolutely indispensable to us both. To you I owe a special debt of gratitude, and I wanted to find a tangible way of saying "thank you” to each one of you. Cycling a long way very slowly may not be the obvious choice. But by giving time to help and support others when they need it in the future, I hope I can show how very much I valued all that you did - and continue to do - to help and support Felicity and myself when we needed it most . Heartfelt thanks to you all.

One Last "Thank You"?
I loved - and still love - Felicity very much. Looking back, I didn't say "thank you” to her as often as I should, nor for countless little things that I miss now but took for granted then.

It's too late to put that right, but I still feel a sense of wanting to thank Felicity for everything that we shared. I don't know whether a long bike ride will fix that for me, but I have to find out.
