Why are you cycling the length of UK?

This expedition is more than just a physical challenge, it’s a big adventure with an even bigger purpose. From start to finish, the journey’s focus will be on showcasing our amazing National Parks, as well as the incredible people working behind the scenes, doing amazing things for our environment on a daily basis. It’s going to be extremely tough (especially as my background is whitewater kayaking- not cycling!), but I’m crazy excited to get stuck in and share this amazing experience with everyone!

Why Support the UK National Park Foundation?

The National Parks have always been special places, however the past year has really shown us just how important. When we weren’t allowed to travel and there were all sorts of crazy going on in our lives, the parks offered us space, fresh air, wildlife, nature and somewhere to find peace. In return, we need to give something back. Our parks need protecting and support to regenerate. Now more than ever.

What do you like to do after a long ride?

Having a dip in the sea, followed by a big plate of chips!
