London Marathon

Congratulations to Mark Howard on the completion of the 2023 London Marathon, which he did virtually on the Lynn Sport Cycle path in Kings Lynn. Mark, a veteran of The Household Calvary, completed the 26.2-mile course in 6-hours 22 minutes in uniform and in his wheelchair! He was received amazing support along the way from many runners and staff from The Bridge for Heroes including the 'Renegade Runners', with particular thanks going to Sian Freeman (pictured) who cycled 15-miles alongside Mark. You can see the effort it took to complete the course by the pain on Mark's face as he endured blisters on his hand and a potential stress fracture to the wrist but it was all smiles in the end! @armedforcescovenantfundtrust @abfthesoldierscharity

Southwold Roubaix

The Southwold Roubaix cycling sportive took place on 23rd April offering routes of 25, 50, 75 and 100-miles both on and off road. A sportive is a mass participation event, not a race and offers the opportunity to get outdoors and do something you enjoy, meeting new people along the way. Cycling is not only good for your physical health, it also can also help combat isolation and lonliness. The photos are of Karl Anthony from The Bridge for Heroes and a chap called Andy who he met on the road and cycled the last 30-miles together offering mutual support and had a good laugh a long the way and the finishers medal.
