“We founded a cycling club last year with the aim of improving our fitness and hopefully losing some weight!! We found that the training and racing was both physically and mentally very hard. We decided therefore that if we were going to push our bodies and mental toughness to the limit, then it would be to do it for a worthy cause. We have both lost close family and friends to cancer and decided that raising money for cancer research would be a motivating cause. We had heard of “The Tyler Foundation” from a friend and contacted them to see if we could help. We were impressed with their set up and the way they helped many sick children in and around Japan. We therefore decided that we wanted to race with the motivation of helping children with cancer. We also hope that next year that we can become involved with the Team Beads of Courage Program. Ride on!!”
