The challenge

In just ten days, Jonny plans to cycle from his hometown, Bushmills Northern Ireland, to the home of his beloved football club, Brighton and Hove Albion, the AMEX.

Jonny and his cousin Stuart will be cycling the whole way together. They will set off on Thursday 9th May stopping along the way in Scotland and throughout England to arrive in Brighton on Saturday 18th May.

They will be joined for the last leg of the journey by Overcoming MS Trustee, Tony Bloom, and BHAFC CEO, Paul Barber, before presenting Overcoming MS charity President and Founder, Linda Bloom a bottle of Bushmills Whiskey.

“I want to prove to myself and our community that a completely average 40-year-old, living with MS for the best part of a decade, can challenge himself physically and mentally, and achieve something just a little bit special.”

How to support Jonny

Jonny was diagnosed with MS 9 years ago this year. Shortly after he discovered the Overcoming MS Program.

“It’s hard to put into words what Overcoming MS means to me. In the darkest of times, it was a beacon of real hope and the path for me to follow. George Jelinek’s work showed me that I had a choice, to make a very real difference in how this condition would affect me, and give the very best odds of living a full and healthy life with MS.”

Jonny is aiming to raise £15,000 for the Overcoming MS charity so that we can reach more people with MS and give them hope that living well with MS is possible!

The route

Jonny will start his cycle from Bushmills to Larne in Northern Ireland, covering 55 miles on the bike before crossing the Irish Sea. He’ll then cover the remaining 545 miles across Great Britain, finishing in Brighton. See his route below!

If you live anywhere near any spots along his route, Jonny would love to see as much cheering and support along the way as possible! Get in touch with us at [email protected] if you want to find out more about cheering Jonny along his route.
