Karl Anthony, Supported by Mark Howard, took part in the British Heart Foundation's London to Brighton Bike Ride on Sunday 19th June. The 54-mile ride started on Clapham Common at 06:30hrs and finished some 4-hours later on Brighton Pier. The weather was excellent for riding and Karl even had a tail-wind! The only Down side was Ditchling Beacon Hill, which averages 9% with a maximum of 16% gradient. Coming only 8-miles from the finish, the riders are already getting tired and this hill is a real tester! If you would like to take part in organised rides, please contact Karl or Mark and join in 😃

Ride London Sportive

Two beneficiaries of The Bridge for Heroes joined 20,000 other bicycle riders to take part in the Ride London Sportive that took place on the 29th May.  The riders started the 61-mile course on Victoria Embankment and finished on the iconic Tower Bridge, via Epping Forest and South Essex.  Mark Howard, a wheelchair user, completed the course in just under 6-hours on a hand-cycle provided by the Bridge for Heroes; he was supported by Karl Perryman riding a Cube Road Bike.  Mark said afterwards that "this is one of the toughest Sportives I've taking part in and I found it more of a challenge than going over Snaefell on the Isle of Man.  We climbed a total of 639-metres over the 61-miles but many of the hills bar one were small inclines but over a long distance, which is a particular challenge for hand-cyclists.  That said, I thoroughly enjoyed the day; its a wonderful experience and the memories will last a life-time".  Karl & Mark are top right.

Bridge for Heroes Cycling

Karl and Mark took part in the 'Beyond Lincolnshire Sportive' on 7th May 22 as part of The Bridge for Heroes Cycling Group.  The ride took them through 62-miles of beautiful Lincolnshire countryside and took them around 5-hours to complete, which included 2-feed stops.  Cycling is an amazing way to help with mental health, anxiety and lonliness and in this month of Mental Health Awareness (and improved weather) is highly recommended to help with both your physical and mentally health.
