The PBC Foundation is an extremely worthy charity and one that is often overlooked. In fact I'd never even heard of Primary Biliary Cirrhosis or the charity until my friend and work colleague, Angie, was diagnosed with the condition a short while ago. PBC is a degenerative liver disease which effects 1 in 4000 people, and is more common in women. You can find out loads more at: www.pbcfoundation.org.uk
Better still, have a read of Angie's Blog about her experiences of living with PBC.

This blog, rather like me in many ways, has laid dormant since the end of my Lands End to John O'Groats ride in 2010 but now, like the proverbial Phoenix, it rises again. This is largely because I've got some exciting stuff planned over the next year or so; chief amongst which is a cycling the 3-Peaks challenge. At present I am woefully unprepared for tackling this in the planned 4 days but hey, I've got the best part of a year to get myself in better shape for it and the preparation will be a great excuse to spend loads more time on the bike and in the hills. Tally Ho.
