Berlin charity bike ride

Fabian took up cycling seriouly after being diagnosed with diabetes and he has used this exercise as part of his system of controlling his medical condition. In 2011 he undertook a ride from Leeds to Amsterdam in support of St Gemma's Hospice in Moortown. (Details - click here) This year he is setting himself the considerably greater challenge of a 430 mile journey to Berlin. He will start at the Ziff Centre and travel via ferry from Hull to Rotterdam, going on then via Utrecht, Osnabrook, Hanover and Postdam. Fabian will be accompanied by his wife Rosy in a support vehicle.

Fabian plans to tweet and blog as his journey unfolds so that his supporters may stay in touch with his progress.

Fabian plans to support more than one charity and hopes that in so doing he can bring sections of the community in Leeds North East closer together.

More details will follow in due course.
