Synopsis

Wayne's Tour A Big Bloke's Tour de France by Wayne R. Howard

Wayne wants to share his inspirational story to arouse the giant that sleeps within each of us. His message is simple: absolute self-belief and the desire to succeed are the most important ingredients for achieving what you want in life. In 2004, Wayne was about to retire from the Lancashire Constabulary after 30 years service, and considered himself an ordinary bloke who wanted to mark the event by achieving an extraordinary thing - To cycle solo all 2,256 miles of the Year 2000 route of the Tour de France in aid of a local cancer charity, and in memory of two colleagues who lost their battle against cancer.He takes you on an authentic journey that is fascinating, convincing, moving and amusing. His down to earth story of the highs and lows of the planning, preparing and the cycling is an inspiring narrative that is sprinkled with lessons in life - yet he combines it with a smile on every page. Someone said that there is at least one book in all of us - Wayne is pleased that this is his. For every new copy purchased, the Rosemere Cancer Foundation receives a GBP1.00 donation.
