The UK 3 Peaks Challenge is a nationally recognized mountain challenge that involves climbing and descending the three highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales. These peaks are


Ben Nevis (1344mtrs)
Scafell Pike (912mtrs)
Snowdon (1085mtrs)

The 3 Peaks Cycle Challenge has been done before, and the record for this is held by John McAvoy, Graeme Widdup and Nicholas Hudson, who achieved this in 2008 in 46 and a half hours.

I aim to beat this record!

And by the way that's 450 miles approx. of cycling between the peaks then 27 miles of up and down the peaks themselves.

I am a currently serving member of the Parachute Regiment and believe that everything possible should be done to support not only the soldiers but the friends and family that have lost loved ones. I myself have lost good friends in the conflicts around the world.

So with that in mind I have decided to challenge myself like nothing I have ever done before. I have no doubt that this test will be one of the hardest things I've done in my life to date but with will, determination, and my friends and family by my side I aim to beat this record and raise as much money as possible for Help for Heroes charity.

Now it's all well and good me doing this challenge but I need your help and support to make this a truly amazing event and to raise some funds for the ones that have sacrificed a great deal more than most.

Thank you for Your Support.
