Team London

John Cooksey

My main enjoyment is cycling.

I am really looking forward to raising as much money as I can after being given the opportunity of joining the London team for the Tour de Pudsey. I have worked for the Group for over nine years and before that I lived in Greece, working as an overseas representative for a Greek holiday specialist. It was a fabulous experience, but hard work in the heat and long days at the airport. I have always been a keen sportsman and will try any sport and love keeping fit, particularly through cycling and swimming. I have completed several triathlons, but my main enjoyment since I got back into it, is the cycling. I love getting out into the countryside with other cyclists and exploring different parts of the country, like the Cotswolds, especially if its a nice warm day! I love travelling and recently came back from New Zealand where I visited my brother managing to get in a bit of cycling there, it is an amazing country. My focus now is on training for the Tour, and also raising as much as I can for BBC Children in Need.
