About Roland York

Hi everyone, especially fellow riders!  Guess this must be a burst of madness after many years of leisurely touring to take on an average of 70 miles a day – over a1000 miles in two weeks.  Fellow riders, I’m only doing it to make you feel good as I will take up the rear of the peloton.  Like most, this is one of my dreams and, at 62, I thought it would be good to add another “Yes, I did it” moment to my CV.  To be able to raise money for MS at the same time makes the pain more acceptable.


At the moment I am teaching at St. Thomas More School in Buxton and they have been kind enough to give me unpaid leave for the last week of term.  Although I have lived in Buxton for 27 years and consider it home, I am originally from South Shields in the N.E.  I have two grown up daughters, Alison and Jo (pains in the backside but I love them to bits), who will no doubt cheer me on and smile as I go through the pain barrier.


Now for the begging bowl!  Seriously, if you can help me to help MS you will make a lot of people enjoy a better way of life.  So, friends, relatives, colleagues and all forms of life please get that dosh out and donate online.  Pupils, old and new, think of the pain old Yorkie is going through and donate to a good cause.  If you would rather send a cheque, please address it to
