Team London

Michael Oakes

I'd rather be scared to death, than bored to death.

I signed up for the Tour de Pudsey to play my part raising funds for BBC Children in Need. Last year I did some smaller scale fundraising, so it seemed like a great chance to do more. My cycling background is more off road and downhill mountain biking and I have been taking part in enduro racing over the last couple of years which I really enjoy. I'm finding that I'm really starting to enjoy this as well, the training required to take on this challenge is really helping my off-road cycling as well, I thought I was fit before but this is a whole new level! I'm looking forward to meeting the rest of the team, it will be great (ie. tough!) but the fundraising target should make it all worthwhile.
