Pedal Cure 4 FightMND

Back on the bike in four weeks time! Yes, folks! I’m back on the bike in just over four weeks time. Where am I going? Off to Melbourne again! On the 8th of March, I’m joining the Pedal Cure 4 FightMND charity ride. This is a fully supported ride, from the 8th to the 14th of...
