I have ten weeks to train.

with No Comments

I’ve been drawing pictures to help support the Duchenne Dash since 2016. The event raises funds for Duchenne UK and helps in their fight against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy,

I’ve done this from my studio – this year I’m getting on a bike and riding London to Paris in 24 Hours – I’ve never done anything like this before. I am petrified. 

How you can help.

My intention is to post as much as I can between now and during the event on May 17 and 18. I’ll make videos and drawings much like when I go to the Tour de France but with a lot more cycling.

Please repost and share as much of my content as you can. It should be fun, and the additional exposure will help Duchenne UK raise more awareness and funds to do the great work they do.

Thanks for your support and please share often.

I have a training plan to increase my weekly rides by 20 miles a week until I get to 200 – it’s cold, it’s windy, if its not cold it’s raining – welcome to midwestern cycling in the spring.

I’ll keep training and drawing if you keep following and send me your thoughts, I could use the emotional support.

let’s get this done – Vive le velo!
