I was hugely influenced by the event that my friend participate to Informatycy Na Rowery where they cycle to fundraise to support various causes, mostly medical treatment for children. and would like to make a small version of their cause in the UK.
Last, but not least important I found cycling a great way to sign a life milestone when I did 200 miles in two days just a few days before my own wedding - in shape of a heart.
