This year I have decided to get involved with a really challenging charity cycle – On a Bike for Maggie’s. It’s going to push me to cycle over 300 miles from London to Newcastle in less than 24 hours.
It would be great to have your support and I’d like to tell you why this is one of the biggest decisions I’ve made this year so far.
The best decisions we make involve food and drink
I have to be honest and say that I don’t really get out that much, but when I do it’s great to be able to spend time with good people. In fact, some of the biggest decisions that we make in our businesses, careers and in our personal lives are made around food and drink.
The moment I decided to join the race involved eating great food at a local Italian in Kirkcaldy and then we followed up our discussions with a few drinks in a nearby pub. I knew immediately that I wanted to be involved, I love a challenge!
On a Bike for Maggie’s
Maggie’s is an awesome charity that really helps people suffering from cancer. I think you’ll agree that we all know somebody that’s either going through cancer treatment, had cancer, or passed away from cancer. This is something that’s close to a lot of people’s hearts.
Being able to do something for them, to help people that need that support, is just mind-blowing for me. I know what people have gone through, I understand the pain and grief. It’s not a good experience for anyone.

This will push me to my limits
Cycling 300 miles in less than 24 hours with only a few stops is something that’s really going to take a lot of hard work for me to accomplish.
The training is going to be really tough and I’ll be pushing my body to the absolute extreme. I’ve got to push through the pain barrier. I’ve got to do everything I possibly can to make it happen. I know that when I cross that line in Newcastle, as I’ve already done in my mind, that I’m going to be helping others get through some really tough times in their life.
It’s a few months of hard work and a day out of my life to help give someone else more days in their life. Relatively, it’s not such a big deal.
Being the best you can be
In order to complete this challenge I have to do some sort of training every single day, whether it’s outside on the bike, on the turbo trainer, or doing an insanity workout.
I’m starting off with an hour a day but I’ll have to start increasing the training and begin to really push my limits. I’m really focussed on pushing through my natural limits and just like everything else that I do, I want to not only do my best, but to be one of the best.
It’s what we’re all about
At Get It Done Cleaning Service Fife we believe in pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. We want to be different and I want to show you that we aren’t just all about money and business.
At the core, our business is about people. In fact, everything’s about people and a lot of business owners miss that. It’s very important to me that we support the local community, support the people that work for us and engage with everyone to show that we care.
The is one of the ways we’re giving back to the community and I hope that we can do much more as Get It Done Cleaning Services grow over the years to come.
Will you help and show your support?
We’ve set a conservative figure of £3,000 initially, but I really want to push the sponsorship to £10,000. £3,000 is the figure that I believe Maggie’s needs to run for a whole day, but if we can push that up to £10,000 we can generate enough money for Maggie’s to operate for more than 3 days.
If we could raise £10,000 that would be absolutely fantastic!
