My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Prostate cancer
Testicular cancer
Mental health and suicide prevention

Basically, I'm overweight and lazy, and I want to do something about it while raising some cash for a good cause.

This year I've managed to cycle 2,269km, cycling to work every day and doing an occasional ride to enjoy the glorious Devon countryside. This is a lot less than previous years. As a result, I feel unhealthy and not as mentally strong as I usually am. Christmas is the time of year where I normally spend all my time relaxing, drinking and overeating, and I want to start the New Year feeling good rather than bloated.

So my plan is to tick the GPS over to 3,000km for the year, meaning I'll have to ride 731km - Torquay to Berwick-upon-Tweed - in just three weeks. I don't have an indoor trainer - I'll be doing it all out on the road or track. In December. And in Devon, where at every turn there's another sodding hill. All while working, getting organised for Christmas, and generally having a bloody good time as outlined above. It definitely won't be easy.

If you'd like to help me stay motivated, please consider making a donation to my Movember page. It's not just about moustaches, and I already have one of the world's finest beards. They support a huge number of schemes to promote good physical and mental health in men including some great work that they do with male cancers. If you can donate a few quid, I'd be really grateful.

Should I fail to achieve the full 731km, I will donate £1 for every kilometre short I am, up to a maximum of £50. Like I need any more motivation.
