Mark will be looking to complete the challenging 147 mile long Sea to Sea Cycle Route (C2C) in May to raise funds for the Jenny Green Challenge Fund for Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
The C2C is a real challenge with some seriously hard climbs – the highest point being over 2000 feet. It starts in the former coal mining and industrial lands of West Cumbria, travels through the stunning scenery of the northern Lake District and heads into Keswick before passing through Penrith and the Eden Valley with its lush valleys and sandstone villages. It ends with a ride through one of Britain’s old industrial heartlands to the North Sea and Sunderland.
MND is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks the upper and lower motor neurones. It leads to weakness and wasting of muscles, causing increasing loss of mobility in the limbs, and difficulties with speech, swallowing and breathing.
