I’m fundraising for The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

I'm taking on a challenge and fundraising for the DofE in support of young people across the UK.

The DofE help young people build life-long belief in themselves, supporting them to take on their own challenges, follow their passions, and discover talents they never knew they had. Because when you prove to yourself that you’re ready for anything, nothing can hold you back.

The COVID-19 pandemic has left the UK’s youth facing more challenges than ever. As young people come out of lockdown, the DofE offers any and every young person the chance to build life-long skills and belief regardless of ability, interest or background. To feel able to do anything, achieve anything and overcome anything life throws their way, whatever their circumstance.

We're raising funds for the DofE so disadvantaged young people can take part in the DofE and build life-long belief in themselves and be ready for anything.

Please donate and help make a huge difference to young people who wouldn’t otherwise have access to the life-changing benefits of the DofE.

Day 1 - Completed it mate! Plus, day 2 route....

Monday 14th Jun
What a day! Extreme heat, but we got through it! Roughly 9 and a half hours in the saddle....

A couple of highlights from the day:
1) Hitting my fundraising target!!! Thank you to everyone that has donated - but let's not stop there!
2) Seeing half a dozen DofE groups on their expeditions - some walking in the heat, whilst others relaxed in the shade!

Sorry for the lack of updates today...I experienced signal issues, overheating problems and the battery running out....let's hope tomorrow is better! 

But onto tomorrow! Here is the route for tomorrow:
209.5 km Road Cycling Route on Strava - let's hope for a cooler day...

Let's do this! 

Here we go!

Monday 14th Jun
Day 1 for Do It 4 Youth!!

Day 1 of 5...Let's do this!

Sunday 13th Jun
Monday 14th June 2021 - Day 1. 

I will be posting updates throughout the day on my progress. 

You can see my route for Day 2 once I have completed the first day. A huge thank you to everyone that has donated already! 

Windsor Castle to Gordonstoun School cycle

Friday 4th Jun
For the Get Up section of the challenge, I will be cycling the equivalent distance between Windsor Castle and Gordonstoun School, Elgin in Scotland - both locations having huge significance in the life of Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh -  a total distance of 650 miles across 5 days. 

Just like thousands of young people with their own DofE experiences since March 2020, my original challenge has been disrupted by the pandemic and I have decided to utilise the #DofEWithADifference flexibilities to allow me to complete this cycle safely and locally. 

I have created 5 routes around Essex which will see me complete circular routes and return home each night for some much needed rest! I will upload my route at the start of each day. 

And it all starts on Monday 14th June 2021!!
