I am publishing this article on the website to help author Freya North raise funds for Beating Bowel Cancer. Below is Freya's account of why she is doing this cycle ride.

Beating Bowel Cancer
We support those affected by bowel cancer to ensure they get the help they need
Charity Registration No. 1063614

I'm honoured to be an official Ambassador for Beating Bowel Cancer since 2013 - a wonderful charity who gave great support to my friend Hannah Berry who tragically died aged just 30. Bowel Cancer is the UK's second biggest cancer killer - yet if detected early enough, 90% of bowel cancer cases are treatable. UK survival rates are lower than in many other European countries - for a nation obsessed with toilet humour, we are surprisingly reticent to keep on top of our bottoms!

As many of you know, I had a fair bit of back surgery in March 2017 and my return to health and fitness has been hugely important to me. Having not ridden a bike for 8 years I decided to start again in June 2017 when the opportunity arose to cycle coast-to-coast from Whitehaven to Tynemouth over some pretty scary hills this September! Mad? Moi? Mais oui!
