7. Take part in a charity bike ride – before

Last week I booked my charity bike ride as part of my #40b440 list – Bike Events’ London to Windsor on 29 August.

The ride starts in Richmond Green and travels through the pretty villages of the Thames Valley to Alexandra Gardens in Windsor. Whilst I could have chosen the mammoth 55 mile choice, Sam suggested that I want to enjoy it (and likewise everything on ‘the list’) so opted for the 37 mile on-road route.

Whilst the official charities, Greenpeace and Coppafeel, are great they aren’t as close to my heart as some others, so I have chosen to raise money for the Scoliosis Campaign Fund, a joint fundraising venture for both SAUK and British Scoliosis Research Foundation.

At the age of 14, I underwent spinal fusion surgery having a Harrington rod implanted alongside my spine to straighten my curvature caused by idiopathic scoliosis. Whilst it was and always will be a bit of a big deal, I lead a relatively normal life – the only thing is that I need to keep fit, which is where cycling comes in.
