The Challenge


In 2016 I will be tackling my biggest challenge yet, when I attempt to cycle 4001 miles across the USA. I’m a novice when it comes to distance cycling, so this will be a seriously difficult undertaking. I will fund all aspects of the ride myself and every single penny I receive in donations will go directly to MSF.

The Route

This unsupported and self funded cycle challenge begins in San Francisco. It passes through the Nevada desert, over the Rocky Mountains, across the wide open plains of the mid-west, over the Appalachian mountains and finishes in New York. Over 4000 miles of adventure and challenge. 

The Target

This project is part of an ongoing fundraising effort. The aim is to raise £100,000 for Doctors Without Borders.

About MSF

Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF). We help people worldwide where the need is greatest, delivering emergency medical aid to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters or exclusion from healthcare.

Donations

Eighty-five percent of every pound you donate is spent on patient care. MSF tries its utmost to make sure that your donations are spent on saving lives rather than on administration and management costs.

Get Involved


Get your organisation behind me

If your team, department or company wants to back my efforts, I’d love to come and give you a short presentation. It will give you a taste of MSF’s inspirational work and give you an insight into the extraordinary 4001 mile challenge I’m setting myself. I’ve spoken to universities, schools and businesses in the past, so I promise it won’t be boring!
