Wales Carer Gears Up For Charity Bike Ride

Archived: Posted September 12, 2014

FCA bike ride
The FCA bike ride to raise money for the Rees Foundation is only days away. Our carers and staff taking part in the gruelling 137 mile, two-day day bike ride have been in training for weeks to prepare for the challenge ahead. Our fantastic carer Sian, from Wales, shares her story so far…

“I started training some weeks ago. I’d got up to 30 miles when I suffered a back injury. The injury has meant I’ve been unable to train for the last three weeks, I’m now feeling better and my back’s improved enough for me to restart my training this week – very slowly. I did three miles two days ago and completed 16 miles today.  I am looking forward to next week, but apprehensive as my training has not been completed. Whatever happens, I am determined to give it my best shot! I have attached some photos from today’s training session. What a glorious day it was, hopefully the weather will continue to be nice for us next week.”

We’re thrilled to have Sian back on the team with us and will be taking good care of her and the other 13 participants taking on this challenge for such a great cause.
