Injured soldier riding for Help for Heroes

A solider and biker who lost both legs and an arm in an explosion in Afghanistan will be leading a procession of other bikers on a specially-adapted trike from Lands End to John O’Groats, and they want others to join them along the way. The trip is called The Numbumrun and will take place during the August Bank Holiday weekend, with...

The BEST of British

Their pay is poor (putting it politely)  and their accomodation (in the UK) ranges from basic (at best) to a disgrace and yet they soldier on.

I wish Andy the very best of luck; his courage, and that of his comrades, is simply awe inspiring.

I'm off to look at the numbumrun site...

I wish Andy all the best on this mammoth ride as I've lost close freinds who served in the middle east within the British Armed forces. I personally respect these men & women because I know the dangers involved in their over sea's duties & would like to join this ride but can not due to racing commitments.

If you can join in, either my making a donation or taking part. It's all for a good cause.

Well, what a fantastic event! I was lucky enough to lead Andy and the rest of the Team from Lands End to John O'Groats, having been sent along as a representative of the road safety initiative RideSafe BackSafe.

The support along the way was phenomenal - and those who rode with us, I know, will be talking about this event for a long time, as it was a very special and emotional trip!

Well done to all who showed their support and who made for a fantastic and safe trip, and well done to Andy for showing everyone that no matter what knocks you down it is still possible to get up and carry on with your life! (Oh, and now the Red Arrows are copying us - but I bet they don't get any motorways closed like us!)

It's just a shame that the media were such a let down - they don't know what they've missed out on!
