I've been volunteering as a Mental Health Recovery Coach through Sheffield Mind's Springboard project for a while, but since the lockdown I have been unable to do this. I have, however, discovered the exercise bike!

I'm aiming to cycle the distance from Sheffield to Land's End (600km or 373 miles!) by the end of the month in order to raise money for Sheffield Mind. I'm doing this to support the charity to continue providing essential services to people experiencing mental health difficulties.

I've cycled 230km so far so I'm now (virtually) enjoying the Cotswolds!

I'm about half way there now! I've cycled somewhere around the distance from Sheffield to Weston-Super-Mare. I may stop off for a virtual ice cream by the sea!
