Sunday 24th April was a perfect day for the 2016 Prostate Cancer Uk Charity Ride organised by the Penzance Wheelers CC. The ride was well supported with an early estimate of over 150 riders…The sun was shining and roads were dry for the stunning 42 mile loop around the beautiful Penwith Peninsula, Cornwall.
I was privileged to be riding with my 13 year old boy, Sunny Donaldson, who is a keen cyclist and Club Captain of Penwith Vélo ,a youth cycling club in West Cornwall.
I have been cycling since I was 4 years old and can still vividly remember my first bike, a purple Raleigh Budgie and the feeling of fun and freedom that it gave which I still feel 40 years later when going for a ride. In the past I have worked as a Cycle Courier in Bristol, raced Mountain Bikes, competed in Triathlons and even done the odd Time Trial, but the most pleasure I get is from riding with friends and exploring new roads to see where they lead….
Good Health and Happiness, Ben
