Lee james’s story

“I’m taking part in the UK Wide Cycle Ride to support people affected by diabetes. There are 4.8 million people living with diabetes in the UK, the complications of which lead to over 500 premature deaths every week. So, I’m riding towards a healthier me, and a better future for people living with diabetes. Support my challenge by hitting the donate button on my profile page.


I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in 2010. This came as a complete shock to both myself and Zoë and shows that this can happen to anyone.

I know I need to do more to keep my diabetes in check so I recently got myself a bike and it seemed like a good idea to sign up to the UK Wide Cycle Challenge :)”
