eDiscovery and data privacy consultant Nigel Murray is again cycling across northern France on the Big Battlefield Bike Ride between 1 and 8 June in support of Help for Heroes. Two things make this a special year – one is that this is the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War; the other is that Nigel has recently had a hip replaced.
Most of us would consider that this entitled us to give it a rest. Nigel has always, however, made much of the fact that many of those who take part in this demanding ride are themselves disabled, some of them seriously so. He compares the difficulties posed by his own operation with those who are missing whole limbs, in many cases multiple limbs, and gets back on his bike.
His operation means that he has only just been able to start training. He doesn’t seem to need much encouragement, but let’s give it to him anyway by making a contribution through his fund-raising page. As well as allowing you to donate, this page gives you more information about the adventure.
