Thanks for taking the time to visit this site.

The loss of Ross Paterson, a great friend to myself and many, many others, has inspired me to finally realise an ambition that I have harboured for almost a decade.

Ross had, and continues to have, a great effect on many people's lives and as a tribute to this I will be attempting to cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats in a maximum of 12 days, covering around 900 miles on the way.

Whilst doing so I hope to raise as much money as possible for the Intensive Care Unit where Ross was treated before he sadly passed away.

You can donate by following the link to the JustGiving site, please do so if you can.

The purpose of this additional site is to provide a means for everyone to get involved and also to see how my training is getting on - and when the time comes on 31st July - how I fare on the expedition itself!

There are a number of different pages to look at, please take the time to have a look about and contribute where you can. Whether it is to offer some words of encouragement, upload some photos of your own, or recount some tales of the boy himself, all contributions, however large or small, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to everyone who has supported me so far, it really means a lot.

Take care
