Honesty piggy donates to charity
Alan Kinnear, a British Cycling Ride Leader, is preparing to take on a challenge, combining his love of the bike with two other gruelling disciplines in his very own gruelling triathlon. On 12th July he is doing a challenging 1 day triathlon.
The Triathlon will start in Glenridding on the shores of Ullswater. It is a demanding course involving Kayaking on Ullswater, Climbing 3,000 feet up Helvellyn, which is the third highest peak in England, via Striding Edge which provides one of the best-known scrambles in the Lake District, and then cycling 50 miles through the Lake District over 3 steep passes (Kirkstone, Whinlatter and Honister) finishing at the top of Honister Pass.
All donations received go to the charity Mind as it’s a charity close to Alan's heart and he would like to give back and help those who are struggling.
After his life was changed by a diagnosis of depression, anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) in 2012, Alan has used cycling to help him regain control of his life and drastically improve his confidence.
"As my confidence grows, I’m able to get more out of my life, whether through the enjoyment of clearing my mind on a long ride, or through cycling with friends and family. I even found that mapping and planning routes helped too."
