 Why am I doing this?

Starting at Brighton on Sunday 2nd July 2017 Finish on the Friday 28th July 2017 at St Paul’s Cathedral London

In all Rob will cover roughly 2,500 miles in 27 days, the cycling is mainly undulating over rolling countryside, though there are some longer, tougher climbs. Distances are fairly long, averaging approx 85 miles per day. He will cycle approximately 2,500 miles on this trip overall. This is not a ride which any hand-cyclist should attempt without specific training.

Rob’s aim is to demonstrate what a disabled hand cyclist can do, to inspire young disabled children and to raise awareness through education in our schools of our dying oceans due to Plastic and climate change.

Along the way he will be gathering 100,000 signatures from the public and schools in support of saving our oceans asking for more education in our schools about our polluted oceans and the effect of climate change, he will hand this petition into number 10 Downing Street London.
