Dan is keen hand biker and canoeist, liking to spend his free time working out or canoeing. In the past he has canoed the Mississippi and the river Rhine for charity, and has plans to canoe the Congo.

Dan's latest achievement was a 2341 mile canoe expedition down the Mississippi and managed to raise £11,000 for charity.

All the more remarkable due to the fact that Dan himself is in a wheelchair, being paralysed below the chest due to a motorbike accident. Check out his website
