Q. So who are you and which classes are your children in?

My name is Kevin Flynn and I am a father of three Scarlett the Badger, Ruairi the Rabbit and Evan… yet to be classified as a specific animal.

Q. What was your first thought when the idea was put to you?

First thought:  Wow that is a long way.

Second thought:  Whilst I like Dartford and Gravesend surely there are more scenic routes for a 200mile cycle ride.

Third thought:  Great bunch of guys and a great cause how could I say no.

Q. What bike do you ride?

I am riding a rare vintage 2000 Schwinn GLX Supersport with a 7005 aluminium frame.  I am actually allergic to carbon fibre and going fast hence this choice of steed.

Q. What are you most looking forward to?

Surviving.

No, but I have done a full somersault and landed on my back… not one to repeat.
