Hi, my name’s James Harvey. Having grown up in the South East I’ve lived in Norwich for the last 18 or so years, post moving up here for University, seems like just yesterday.
For my day job I work as a Project Manager for Virgin Money, a fast paced and challenging job with lots going on, especially now we’re a bank with some big plans. Learnt a lot and made some great friends over the years, never a dull moment!
Outside work I pursue a variety of activities including producing short films and audio dramas with my It’s A Trap buddies (check us out on Youtube), Kendo, guitar playing, enjoying real ale, and of course cycling.
The last few years have been pretty hectic with one thing and another and a few months ago I decided it was time for a break from the day job, and to raise some money for charity. My ex-wife and dear friend Lu Harvey passed away from cancer in Feb 2012, so it feels like the right thing to be doing something both for myself and to remember Lu by.
Pretty much straight away I decided cycling around the coast of Britain was the way to go. I’ve always been up for an adventure but nothing quite this significant before. Who knows what the road will bring? I’m sure it’ll be exciting whatever it is.
