25 local people of all ages have just completed one of those Bucket List items and all in aid of four local children’s charities.
Mark Jones from Assured Wealth a local independent financial planner who organised the event said “25 people gave a week of their lives to take on a personal challenge and successfully cycled 326 miles from London to Paris. They rode up the equivalent of three Ben Nevis whilst taking part in this challenge. There was one or two crashes along the way, but only minor bumps and bruises and nothing to serious. There were tears of joy along with the champagne at the Eiffel Tower as we arrived on Saturday 23rd September at 5p.m. in 28 degree heat. The emotion was a bit too much for some as friends and family had flown in to be at the finish with them at the finish line. Team work, jokes and a lot of food kept us all going. Brainwave, Hand on Heart, SASSY and Warrington Youth Club will all benefit from these courageous volunteers.
If you would like to make a donation, then 100% will go to helping local people. You can visit Just Giving and in the search box simply type Hand on Heart cycle London to Paris and read their story.
So what is next for the charity fund raiser? Mark said “we are riding agin in 2019 from Salzburg to Vienna, it’s only 270 miles this time and a lot flatter so ideal for the first time challenger”.
