It all started with... by Andy Baggaley

It all started with being given a diagnosis of MS, a debilitating illness that can take over your life. I was lucky; told that I have what’s called relapsing remitting MS. The best kind, I suppose, if you have to have it.

MS affects your stamina and I was told that I would not have as much as I used to, and they were right.  For years especially in summer time I would be like I’d just been unplugged, no energy whatsoever and it wasn’t getting any better. I was rather fed up with it, so I decided to try to do something.  So I bought a bike, a mountain bike.
