About our event

Although the key aim of this proposal is to encourage corporate interest, many individuals for all sorts of personal reasons have been inspired to participate. Most people will be affected by mental health issues, directly or indirectly, and I hope a few will benefit and share my journey.

 

Mental health, and the cycling experience on which I have built my successful business, is the reason for my next cycling challenge. A decade ago I was being treated for severe symptoms of Bipolar Affective Disorder and told that I’d never be a contributing member of society without the use of harsh prescription medication. Now I own and operate a multi-national business, operating in nearly 20 countries. I take no drugs of any kind, don't drink alcohol and follow a healthy plant based diet.

 

In September 2018, I attempted to break the World Record for the fastest cycle ride of America’s iconic Route 66, 2500 miles in under 11 days. Having ridden 1750 miles on a twisted ankle, my left quad succumbed to an elongated muscle a mere 500 miles from the finish and I pulled out. The ride was in aid of two charities, Mind (UK) and NAMI (US) – both do amazing work in their respective countries helping people through tough times towards mental stability. We raised over $7000.00 for both charities.

 

I am the inspiration behind, and founder of, Direct Power Coaching. In just 6 years and during a recession, I built a multi-national coaching business from scratch. My unique ‘Truly Personal Coaching’ approach is largely informed by my own experience of cycling and how it has shaped and enhanced my life. Treating everyone as an individual is the philosophy I promote both in business and in life.

 

Building the Direct Power Coaching offering and brand has seen me develop a reputation as highly innovative coach and my social media programme has seen this reputation grow to the point where I am now the BikesEtc MagazinesCycling Guru and also a regular presenter and lecturer at cycling events and festivals. My first book, ‘The Guide to Truly Effective Cycling’ is in discussion with various publishers.

 

As well as being a successful coach, I am also a highly competitive athlete, achieving many local and regional titles in time trialing and endurance cycling.

Sponsorship Opportunities

  1. Charities

 

Raising money and awareness for charities who help others with mental health problems was a given. I opted to choose one charity from each of the countries I hold residence in, the UK (Mind) and the US (NAMI). 

 

“Mindaims to change public attitudes and government policy towards mental health whilst raising awareness. We also continue to ensure that everyone with a mental health problem has somewhere to turn for advice and support. The money raised from this event will help us to continue with our vital works. Any support you can give would be greatly appreciated.”

 

“NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation's leading voice on mental health. Today, we are an association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and volunteers who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.”

 

Letters of Authority are available on request.

 

 

  1. Route 66 & Other Events, 2019:

 

There are a number of changes we will make to next year’s record attempt. While not confirmed, we might look to incorporate a few other records into one attempt. Fastest crossing of USA North to South, fastest known time riding the Pacific Coast Highway, fastest known time riding Route 66 and then fastest crossing of USA North to South then West to East, all in one ride looks achievable.

 

Again, I’ve not confirmed any specific attempts, but, I’d like to see how many fastest known times I can tick off in preparation next year. 

 

Whatever happens, it will be bigger than the already impressive stats we achieved in 2018!
