Close to the Edge

Yorkshire man Jonathan Skinner will be raising vital funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust this August by motorcycling 4,000 miles around the entire coastline of the British Isles.

27 year old Jonathan embarks on his amazing challenge on August 1st from Harrogate and will be riding 400 miles a day for two weeks camping overnight at stops along the route. He heads north from Harrogate with his first spot in Fife.

Jonathan has chosen to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust because his aunt has Cystic Fibrosis (CF). He said: “I wanted to do something to raise money for my aunt and I love motorbikes so this seemed like the perfect challenge. I was inspired by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman who motorcycled round the world. Although I’m not covering as much ground as them it’s still going to be a tough challenge, and has only been completed by a handful of riders.”

Jonathan has already raised nearly £6,000 for the CF Trust. To find out more and donate go to www.closetotheedgetour.co.uk
