My story

I'm cycling in the Bike Oxford sportive to raise money for the Oxford based charity, The Archway Foundation.

Over 9 million people in the UK – almost a fifth of the population – say they are always or often lonely, and its effects include deterioration in mental and physical health as well as emotional distress.

The Archway Foundation tackles loneliness and isolation in Oxfordshire, helping people who feel unwanted and excluded, matching them with volunteer befrienders and social networks that give them back a sense of belonging.

I think Covid lockdowns and associated societal changes have given us all a greater appreciation of the impact loneliness can have. 
So I'm happy to support a small local charity that helps to relieve the distress associated with loneliness, its causes and impact. 
Plus my sister works for The Archway Foundation and she twisted my arm

What I will be doing to warrant your donations?
I'll be attempting the Bike Oxford long route, 78 miles and 4,328 feet of climbing.
The ride does take in some of the Oxford colleges but it also visits the Chilterns! Something my sister neglected to mention.
I've never done so much climbing in one day, so it will definitely be a challenge.

I'd really appreciate your sponsorship, and thank you for your support.
