Joining the DAS team is a great opportunity to use my love of cycling and explore England and Scotland by bike while being part of a tremendous fundraising effort. DAS have chosen a charity that reaches across all the UK and is so important to families affected by dementia.

I have been a keen cyclist for the past 10 years and always looking for a challenge – touring long distances and pushing my endurance capabilities while seeing great scenery. The Deloitte Ride Across Britain will be the most consecutive 100+ mile cycling days that that I will have achieved, although in 2019 I rode 246 miles from Campbelltown to Aberdeen over 16 hours, as part of a small group with ultra-endurance athlete Mark Beaumont.

I expect RAB to be a good physical and mental challenge, one that will be dictated by the British weather and rolling geography.
