If you're looking for some inspiration on a chilly, grey November day then you've come to the right place. This week's Website of the Week belongs to Mike Coburn, who is with out a doubt, one of life's really fighters! Mike was diagnosed with Chronic Myloid Leukaemia in 2004 - without treatment the prognosis wasn't good, in fact it was pretty damn awful, three to six months left to live to be exact.

On the day of his diagnosis back in March 2004, Mike, a South African sailmaker, learnt one very important lesson, and in his words, that lesson was, "there is no future worrying about, 'what if' and 'maybe' because it will literally eat you alive. You`ve just got to make the best of a really bad situation and fight!" Fight, is exactly what Mike has done all the way, and now five year's on, he's just ridden 917miles from John 0'Groats to Land's End.

Mike's drive, determination and passion is infectious and I highly recommend reading his remarkable story. To be inspired go to:
