Reason you are tackling the Journey of Leagues Extraordinary Gents: I am tackling The Journey because Steve Prescott was extremely mentally fit and proved that the body achieves what the mind believes and that mental fitness can be achieved by anyone to do things they never thought they could. I never thought I would be able to hand-cycle from Hull to Manchester and mental fitness will be crucial to successfully completing the challenge.

What are you most looking forward to: Looking forward to the bonding of a team to succeed in an immense physical and mental challenge

What are you least looking forward to: Not looking forward to going over the Pennines in October!
