Hello all,

I thought I'd give you an update. I completed my course of radiotherapy and I'm on the 4th course of chemotherapy and it does lay you out a bit as a few of you know.

I did manage to get out on the bike yesterday for the first time on a long(ish) ride down the River Mersey and Trans Pennine Trail. I'm completely knackered today but it was good to get out again.

I'm going to set myself a goal of getting to one of the NW area rides later this year so I hope to see some of you out and about then.

Cheers, Jon

Jon, sorry to hear you're unwell. Glad you're back on the bike and hope you get out to a NW ride later this year. All the best, JOhn

Jon, great that you've made it out on the bike. I know Christie well, my best mate lives right opposite at 557. He's a doctor and Christies have a great reputation.

Wishing you a speedy recovery bud.

I have news...

I had a scan on Wednesday and it's all clear :D

Still got to complete the 6th course of chemotherapy but that's only another 4 days and I'm free!

Chuffed to bits and I've been a bit drunk since then :wink:

So see you out on the trails when I've got a bit fitter :)

(Sorry about the excessive use of emoticons but I'm very happy)
