Paul Burden - My Ride for Life
Could You Ride A Bike With One ARM And One LEG?
My name is Paul Burden and after multiple battles with cancer I am inspired to ride a bike from John o’ Groats to Lands End.
The bike will be powered only by one arm and one leg, hoping to raise £500,000 for Cancer Research.
Unfortunately in April 2009, with training well under way, I contracted necrotising fasciitis a flesh eating bug and lost my right arm at the shoulder.
I am not one to be put off though!
I have found a new bike that I will do the ride on using my only remaining leg for power and my remaining arm for steering brakes and gears.
Timescales have had to be put back a year though to May/June 2012 this will give me time to recover from my arm loss and to get training again.
My goal is to raise £500,000 for Cancer Research.
Please help me achieve this target by donating as much as you feel you are able. Every penny helps!
