Ride & Glide

“I am an overweight, unfit, 50 year old Occupational Therapist, ex-teacher and gliderpilot. For my 50th birthday I decided I would embark on a series of journies that would see me visiting every gliding club on the planet.”

“I am about to embark on the first stage of the journey, a ride from Germany down through to South Africa. I am hoping to raise funds for charities connected with assisting disabled people. More details on www.rideandglide.co.uk – find out why I chose a bicycle over a motorcycle for the journey.”

“One bit of advice – hills are great on a fully loaded touring bike ……. when going down them!”

Paul is from the Isle of Man but the beginning of his cycling adventures began while living in Toronto, Canada.

“Before leaving I realized I wanted to experience the entire country and thought what better way than on a bicycle. Having not been on a bicycle for years I didn’t know whether my body would cope, so during summer 2009 I cycled 1000miles through England and France. Everything went to plan.”

In February 2012, I will set off on my next adventure….”
