Hi 👋🏼 it’s seriously countdown time now!!

Under 2 weeks to go before I set off on my longest day adventure.

If you still haven’t donated to help me help childrenshospicesw please use the link 🔗 in my bio or in my story. Remember all funds are going to the #littleharbourhospice right here in Cornwall.

We are a few 💷 pounds short of the magic £1000 barrier, but with your help we can crack that and hopefully 🤞🏼 more.

I have trapped a nerve in my neck 😓 but I am still getting the miles done ✔️ in training for this massive challenge.

C’mon let today be the day you pop a few quid in the pot and then can sit back and watch me do the hard part of chasing that sun ☀️ for 205miles !!! 💦

Thanks 🙏🏼 so so much 🤗

🚴‍♂️ Why I’m Taking on the Chase the Sun (chasethesuncycle Challenge in Ireland 🌅

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be participating in the Chase the Sun bike ride in Ireland to raise funds for macmillancancer ! 💚

Why? Because exercise is powerful medicine. Here’s how:

1. Cancer Prevention: Regular exercise can significantly lower the risk of developing cancer. It’s a natural way to boost your body’s defenses.
2. Immune System Boost: Physical activity enhances our immune response, helping the body to fight off cancer cells more effectively.
3. Weight Management: Staying active helps maintain a healthy weight, reducing risks for cancers like breast and colon cancer.
4. Reducing Inflammation: Exercise reduces inflammation in the body, a key factor in cancer development.
5. Hormonal Regulation: It helps balance hormones such as estrogen and insulin, which can play a role in cancer growth.
6. Improving Digestion: Regular exercise improves digestive health, lowering the risk of colorectal cancer.
7. Recovery Support: For cancer survivors, exercise can enhance physical function, reduce fatigue, and improve overall quality of life.
8. Mental Health Benefits: Exercise also helps alleviate anxiety and depression, common among cancer patients and survivors.

I believe in the power of exercise to prevent cancer and support recovery. That’s why I’m challenging myself with this ride and why I’m asking for your support. Together, we can make a difference. 💪

Congratulations to daveblanky who not only completed Ride London at the weekend but added on an extra `few` miles because his evil coach said 100miles wasn`t enough in the lead up to a bigger event 🤣.

I can`t wait to see how David gets on for his `A` event this year which is basically twice as long and with hills thrown in for good measure. His dedication to PT sessions and following his cycling plan has been awesome so I know he will smash chasethesuncycle

Today’s ride to Skegness didn’t quite go to plan! 
What started out in beautiful sunshine ☀️ ended in the pouring rain 🌧️ and a trip to A&E 🤦‍♀️.
The glamour of long distance cycling in the UK with rain covered pot holes 🕳️ galore!! A bang to the head that I am sure will do melberryswims some good and knee that may not fit jeans for a while 🤣. Thankfully her hip seems to be intact! 
In case you wondered I did eventually take my helmet off. I was cold 🥶 I wanted to keep any heat I had left in. Thanks to the team at Lincolnshire Community Hospital Skegness for the dry cloths to travel the 2 hours home 🏠 in🥶🤣.
A day trip we won’t forget in a hurry! 
Still some good miles in for chasethesuncycle in 4 weeks time🤣☀️🚴‍♀️

Here are some pointy bits to look toward to in CTS North this Saturday!
Chase The Sun UK North starts on the beachfront in Whitley Bay, north of Newcastle Upon Tyne, and takes in the wild hills, forests and rivers of Northumberland and the dramatic southern uplands of Scotland, crossing historic bridges and epic wilderness, riding over 200 miles to reach a view of mid-summer sunset over the Firth of Clyde from Ayr seafront.

In 7 days’ time, riders will be gathering for our midsummer challenge, sunrise to sunset coast to coast simultaneously across 4 routes in Ireland, Scotland, England & Italy.
Who’s taking on CTS Ireland, our newest and arguably toughest ride?
Chase the Sun Ireland starts at sunrise on the Irish Sea at the historic Titanic docks of Belfast, proceeds up the dramatic coastal road and through the Antrim Glens before heading inland to traverse forests, mountains, and loughs. Riders explore the mythical landscapes and landmarks of the ’emerald isle’. The route crosses the border of Northern and Republic of Ireland, and finishes after 209 miles at sunset on the Atlantic beaches of Enniscrone.
