Peter van Poelgeest
Like all the Dutch people I cycle since the day I was born.
As you all know we use our bikes a lot for our daily routines like going to work (it takes me two whole minutes), shopping, visiting friends/family.
I used to run a lot (almost every day), but when injuries arrived I started to do more cycling on my road bike. I did some 100/150 km tours in Holland during the years. The last couple of years I only used my road bike once a year to cycle with team Stevenage for Prostate Cancer from the Hook of Holland to Amsterdam.
I support Stevenage FC for many years now and made a lot of friends through those years, always a pleasure when we meet.
So the Twin Towns 1000 ride will be a tough challenge for me as well, and hopefully I can join from Stevenage, otherwise I will do the Dutch, German and French part.
My wife Nancy will join as well to support (maybe bike a bit as well) and hopefully we can raise a lot of money for our charity.
