Alan's Story

My name is Alan Wilkins. I am taking part in the UK Wide Cycle Ride to support people affected by diabetes. There are 4.8 million people living with diabetes in the UK, the complications of which lead to over 500 premature deaths every week.

Alan's journal

30/04/21. Second ride of the day. This time it was wet and cold north easterly breeze. only another 6 miles, but they all count. Total for the month now is 286 miles.


Last day of the challenge. I just rode another 20 miles even though balance still not good, but I managed it :-) I may have to go out for a short ride later to bring my total a little higher. It's my personal best total for a month and stands at 279.63 miles, I've managed 59 miles more than I signed up to to, so pleased with that.

29/04/21 Meniere's still playing havoc with my balance. I went out and done a few more miles tonight with Becky, unsteady on the bike, but actually worse when on my feet. 1 more day of the challenge to do. Currently on 258 miles, so happy to have achieved my original goal and also my personal best mileage in a month to date.
