Dean’s story

The Big Issue Foundation helped me get my CBT (compulsory basic training) to become a cycle courier. I know from experience how much they support vendors and I want to help TBIF to support other vendors in return. This is why I’ve decided to take on two cycle challenges in 2015 for the charity! I will be going to Holland for the first time on the London to Amsterdam cycle ride. As well as this, I will be riding 100 miles in one day on Ride London this weekend.

During my courier work, I’ve managed to cycle around 50 miles a day which has been good training.  I also really enjoy riding around Richmond Park. I took part in Ride London last year and I’m looking forward to riding the free open roads of London again, without having to worry about traffic. Ride London is a great challenge and you only have to worry about the other cyclists around you on the route.

You can sponsor me for the two cycling challenges here.
