Stephen Williams and three of his family members will embark on this challenge to raise funds and awareness of fibromyalgia because Stephen’s wife, Amanda, suffers from this condition. Stephen said: ‘’To support FMA UK, myself and some of Amanda's cousins (Emma White, Ben White, Hannah Bown) are doing a long distance cycle from Exmouth to Chester, that's 220 to 250 miles depending on how bad our map readings skills are or how big the hills are (we might have to go around them). This may seem an odd route to pick, but it has significance. Every year Amanda and I would go to Exmouth to visit Amanda's family, indeed Amanda has been going there all her life. However she can no longer make the journey due to the pain she is in. When pondering what to do to raise money for FMA UK, it seemed appropriate to ride this route.
We are planning to start on Exmouth seafront on 31st May 2017 and finish in Chester on the 1st June 2017. If the map reading skills are poor this may be the 2nd June. On route we shall be riding across Exmoor, over the Severn Bridge (not in the outside lane!!) and up the English/Welsh border.
We are asking for donations to this worthy charity - Fibromyalgia Action UK. The ride will be self funded so all your donations will go to the charity. Your donations will of course be great motivation when we are struggling with the training and on the ride itself. Thank you for your support.’’
