About Claudia Wood
Hello. My name is Claudia. I live and work in North Somerset, which is in the South West of England, UK.
I am very much an amateur cyclist (with more enthusiasm than ability!) but I am very much looking forward to taking part in the Trans America charity cycle ride this summer. The 3785 miles is so vastly different from my daily 10 mile round trip to work that I can hardly compute just what a challenge I have taken on… A few leisurely cycling holidays in France don’t really count….
I have visited America on several occasions and have always loved my time there. Having longed to travel to some of the iconic locations across the country, I was thrilled to see that there was a charity event that would allow me to achieve this and do something for a worthwhile cause at the same time.
Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, sometimes disabling disease that affects the body’s central nervous system, which comprises the brain and spinal cord. This charity cycling event both raises awareness of MS and raises money for MS research. There is also practical assistance for some people living with MS as the cyclists will carry out voluntary work right across the USA. During the trip, the cyclists use some of their rest days to carry out tasks and projects that MS patients may find difficult in their day to day lives.
Part of the challenge is to raise US$3785 – which is a $ a mile. For all my English friends, that is about GB£2300 (about 60p a mile).
