Alex raises £300 cycling from Luton to Brighton on a fixed wheel!

Before I get started, thank you to all the people who sponsored me and especially Ray from TRI LONDON, triathlon club, it is much appreciated. This was so far the best ride of my life, it was at the time the longest ride I’d ever been on, and as I picked the hardest route to Brighton and rode on a 72” fixed wheel, I was surprised at how fresh I was at the end, and also by how enjoyable and memorable that day was for me. I really hope my efforts have benefited the people at the shelter in some way. I’m happy to have had the opportunity to ride a bike across such picturesque scenery and to feel that by exercising this liberty I have made a small contribution to improving the living conditions in much more unfavourable circumstances than my own.
