Our fundraiser Ron Hutchinson has decided to undertake the challenge and raise money for Community Link along the way and we will be there supporting him all the way.
Ron said â€œHaving completed many charity challenges around the world back in the day, this one will be really tough for me. I haven’t been on a bike for years, my knees are shot and I’m now 60 plus. This ride will be hard for me so it means giving that bit extra and training hard – 75 miles in a day is a real challenge. But itâ€™s for a good cause and after the pain, others will benefit from my efforts. Times are hard but many small donations will amount to a lot, so please dig deep and support this challenge. I wonâ€™t let you down!â€

All the trustees are very grateful to Ron for giving up his own time to complete this challenge and wish him the very best of luck.
