I broke my back skiing in 2014. I have titanium poles screwed into my spine and a titanium vertebra to replace the one I destroyed.

I was living in Italy as part of my recovery and decided to take up road cycling, joining a club, the Centinarolese (nicknamed I Pansèrs) in 2015. They are a very friendly club. I learnt so much from them and made many new friends.

In November 2015 I returned to London for the winter and joined ICC. Another great club. In September 2017 I was proud to organise the first ICC twinning, when 10 ICCers came out to Italy to ride with my club. A great weekend. Since then the Pansèrs have been to London in 2018 and ICC returned to Fano in 2019.

We have now established that the Pansèrs travel to London in even number years and ICCers travel to Italy in odd number of years.

Due to Brexit we are now resident in Italy but I return to London from time to time and ride with the club whenever I can.
