On Sunday 31st July 2016, i went for a bike ride with my good friend George, unfortunately whilst i was out i had a cardiac arrest. This happened in the middle of the Mendips and therefore little help or support was on hand. The Air Ambulance was scrambled and quickly came to my aid, stabilised me and flew me to the Bristol Royal Infirmary where there was a special heart unit. Without George and the Air Ambulance teams professional intervention i would not be here today. My wife and her friends are tackling the 54 mile route while i am doing the 11 mile route with my 2 sons.
