Currently a P.E. teacher overseas, Mark loves sport. He has dabbled in pretty much every sport going, even trying his hand at ice fishing and probably doing the best at that one. He loves cycling and enjoys getting out on the bike as much as possible. He has competed in numerous sprint and olympic distance triathlons as well as several duathlons. He is looking forward to the challenge of LEJOG and is hopeful his brother will be able to keep up:)
Ben is the younger of the two brothers. He has been riding for 3 years, only taking his stabilizers off in 2007. Like his brother, he has played pretty much every sport going, perhaps excelling most at crown green bowling. He is currently riding a Tricycle, but hopes to upgrade before the journey. The picture to the left shows Ben in training mode whilst funraising for the ride.
