Scott Davey, one of our amazing cycling supporters is taking part in the 60K Tour de Tendring. Scott used to do a lot of running but stopped after the shock of being diagnosed with an MPN, after 6 months he decided that getting fit would help with his MPN, but unfortunately back surgery put an end to running, so after recovering from surgery Scott decided to start cycling. He enjoys being out in the fresh air, keeping fit and cycling helps combat the effects of his MPN. If you would like to support Scott go to his Just Giving Page
