Just a cycle in the park


Sporty people are used to getting their pulses racing, some push their heart rate as high as it will go. But for Steve O’Sullivan, his heart rate will be staying firmly under 112 beats per minute, despite cycling nearly 1,000 miles for charity.

Two years ago, Steve had a major heart attack which damaged his heart. Due to this, he must now not exceed 112 beats per minute, but, as Steve says, this has not stopped him being sporty. In fact, this year he raised £800 for charity by completing the BHF London to Brighton bike ride.

Soon, London to Brighton will seem like a ‘cycle’ in the park for Steve who plans to ride from John O’Groats to Lands End on 2 August next year. He will be cycling in aid of two charities, Joining Jack, which raises money for research into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and Coppafeel, whose aim is to raise awareness of breast cancer in the 18-25 age group.

To show your support to Steve and help him smash his fundraising target you can donate here.

    Proud of you Steve! You have come so far…so determined. I’ll be with you every step (or shoud that be pedal) of the way. xxx
