Thank god for downhills.

Hi there!

Welcome to my brand new blog, the all new and shiny graemewillgress.com. I’m setting this up with just 3.5 months to the biggest event in my life. My ‘Round Britain Cycle for Health’ ride. 4000 (at least!!) miles around the British coast to raise awareness of mental health issues and the role exercise can play in managing this. Mental Health problems have plagued my whole life and this ride comes out of the debris left behind by a major break down. I’ll also be raising money for ‘Sustrans’ the Uk’s leading sustainable transport charity, who built and are extending the National Cycle Network. But for them, I wouldnt be cycling now, because initially I had really poor concentration and riding on the road wasnt an option. I’m constantly amazed how much they have achieved for us in fifteen years.

I hope to talk about all things cycling here, including your experiences out there in the world. I will be blogging from the road when I leave on May 2nd and that’ll mean relying on the good old iphone.

Anyway, enough for now, I have a whole webpage to design and play with.
