Thanks to Technifold Ltd for their support.


In 2004, I lost my mum. Sadly she died, losing her 3 year battle against ovarian cancer. She was 56. She was the most considerate, caring person I know.

Those rollercoaster three years were the hardest of my life but it did not take me long to realise that out of all of this, something positive must happen.

pedal4life has been created in memory of Lorraine Wigg. Set up by myself, my brother, Andrew and good friend Alex Clayton, our aim is to raise as much money as we can in the fight against cancer.

Today, more than one million people living in the UK have been diagnosed with cancer. I believe people should receive the very best information, treatment, care and support. With your support, pedal4life can make a difference. I hope this will mean that in the future people don't lose someone they love to cancer.

Over 17 days in the Spring of 2006 we will cycle across Europe. We will travel southwards from Paris through the French Alps into Switzerland, eastwards across Austria before travelling northwards into the Czech Republic and finally Germany, finishing in Berlin. Ignoring the number of wrong turns, we will cycle 2,386 kilometres over challenging terrain.
