Over the next few days we'll be profiling some of the riders taking part in the 161km ride from Brecon to Cardiff.

Why did you sign up to the Tricycle event?

There's no better way to raise money for a cause you care about while doing things you really enjoy.

How long have you been cycling for? 

30 odd years

What is your biggest worry about taking part in this event?

 Running out of peanut butter and apples.

A strange cycling experience?

On one of my rides I met a priest from Slovakia who tried to convince me to join a monastery in Bavaria. I kindly declined the offer.

What age did you stop using stabilizers on your bike?

Quite early actually, but I'm considering buying a quad so they may be back on soon!

If you'd like to help our team reach their target please feel free to donate

A big thank you from all of us at V12 in advance!
