This time next week the first days riding will be over. Seems a good time to remind you why I’m doing this & to remind you that to support my fundraising for Help for Heroes all you need to do is go to my fundraising page : http://www.bmycharity.com/SimonWParistoLondonpedal
I’ve been asked why I support Help for Heroes. In 2004, I was medically discharged from the RAF after 14 years. Despite leaving the RAF earlier than I had planned because of my hearing loss I consider myself to be lucky. I left with all the bits of me that were attached when I joined up still attached when I left! Far too many of our young servicemen and women aren’t as lucky as me. After a few years of not doing quite as much exercise as I could have I decided that I needed to get a bit fitter and wanted a physical challenge to motivate me. It was around this time in 2009 I saw on the Help for Heroes website http://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/ details of their “Big Battlefield Bike Ride 2010” and signed up, committed to raise some money and started cycling more than I had since i’d got my first car!, .
