Name Michael LeatherLifer
Why am I involved?
So why am I off again – on another piece of madness; as ever no one single reason but a whole other set of reasons!
I followed on the Internet the 2016 Tour de Force / and I watched the Pro’s (one week later) - and I thought to myself, in a low key way, that I’d quietly discipline and do the 2017 event; but it also gave me a chance to:-
- a) Finish what I had started (we set out a target of £50,000 fund raising in 2015 - we fell short by £10,000 and whilst £40,000 is an amazing sum – I do hope we can raise the final £10,000 and more, this year).
- b) Paying tribute to a close friend of mine; who said (and I paraphrase) that when I was cycling I was massively more relaxed as a consequence of cycling. Sadly my friend died in 2016, in quite tragic circumstances, and when I signed up this was in part a memorial act.
- c) Do something I enjoy.
- d) Get some “headspace” and show there is life after 50!
