On Thursday 21st July, Simon Mort set off to complete the London to Paris Cycle Challenge, raising £1,754 for Myton!
Over the 4 days, Simon endured inclines of up to 6,000ft and travelled across varied landscapes to complete the 350 mile course from London to Paris. On the third day, cyclists rode deep into the beautiful French countryside and along the River Somme, passing military cemeteries commemorating those who lost their lives during the First World War. Understandably, this was a poignant part of the route for Simon and the other cyclists taking part in the challenge.
In preparation for the London to Paris Cycle Challenge, Simon also completed the Welsh Dragon Cycle Ride in June, covering 142 miles and climbing over 11,000 feet!
Simon wanted to raise money for Myton because his father- in- law and some of his school friends had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and he wanted to support those who are going through a similar experience by raising funds for Myton.
Simon has previously completed a number of fundraisers for Myton and we are delighted to hear that he plans on completing many more!
We would like to thank Simon for his continued support and for completing such a testing challenge to raise money for Myton. It is thanks to people like Simon that we are able to continue supporting and caring for our patients and their loved ones.
