Annette & Bob Culshaw

We are Bob & Annette, and we are cycling from Lands End to John O Groats starting on Sept 4th 2018.
This is no small challenge as Bob is 73 and Annette is 69. We anticipate that the journey will take us about one month to complete.

Bob's son, Nick,is currently in Harefield Hospital awaiting a heart transplant. He has been in hospital for five months so far, and may have to wait much longer, such is the shortage of hearts for transplant. He has two young children at home many miles away from the hospital, so his emotional journey is so much more difficult than our own. He has always been fit, but has a debilitating heart disease known as ARVC (Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy) It is a disease which strikes young athletes, usually in their teens. He is one remarkable man, whose courage and positivism shines through everything he does.

We are cycling from Lands End to John O'Groats on our electric bikes to raise awareness of the need for people to sign up for organ donation, to support Nick and to raise money for The Harefield Transplant Appeal.

We also want to inspire all those people who enjoy cycling, but are perhaps not young enough or fit enough to cope with hills and heavy winds, to get an electric bike, get out and keep fit. We also want to inspire and motivate all those people who suffer from diabetes, those who are overweight or who simply need to improve their respiration, cardiac ability or their mobility and health. Cycling on an electric bike opens up a whole new world of enjoyment and helps fitness levels enormously. Try it... you will have such fun too.

We feel that this venture is the most appropriate way of raising money as it reflects Nick's passion for cycling.
