Cycling For Good

I have a lot to gain from cycling the Atlantic Coast. I’ll get more fit. Have a challenge and the adventure of a lifetime. See the country on bike time. Meet great people.  But I want to do more.

I want to take this opportunity to raise awareness and funds for some charities that mean a lot to people who have made life better for me and others around them.
