The second book in the Riding2Recovery series follows the authors continuing battle to overcome poor mental health and raise awareness of mental health issues through ultra distance fundraising cycle tours.
His 2012 journey saw him riding from Lands End in the UK to the far north of the Shetland Isles via Irelands wild and rugged west coast and the Outer Hebrides.
Having cycled unsupported around the entire UK coastline whilst managing poor mental health, and having written his first book documenting this journey,the author turned his attention to what would constitute the next step forwards in his recovery.
In deciding to cycle over 3500 kilometres from Lands End in the UK to the far north of the Shetland Isles, via Irelands wild and rugged west coast and the Outer Hebrides,the author had a new challenge that would provide that step.
The physical challenge of the cycle journey would be equalled by the mental challenge of the many ferry crossings and flights that would he would he would be forced to undertake on this new adventure.
The purpose of this trip would be to continue to raise awareness of the issues surrounding poor mental health whilst fundraising for the UK mental health charity MIND.
Had the author known that the UK was about to receive its worst summer on record he may not have ever set out. As it was he was left to battle the elements, his mind, and the physical stresses of such a major undertaking.
