Braintree: Shop manager completes gruelling cycle ride
4:00pm Monday 30th September 2013 in News
A shop manager took on a gruelling 100 mile cycling challenge for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.
Trevor Jackson, manager of Wickes, in Century Drive, Braintree, completed the London Bikeathon on September 15.
The 43-year-old only took up cycling last March for a work challenge, but has since taken part in several major events.
In June he raised nearly £2,000 by riding from London to Paris.
Trevor, who lives in Rayleigh, has raised an extra £400 from his latest challenge.
His wife Angela said: “This was the first time riding the century in a day.
“The course was very challenging taking in Box Hill, Leith Hill and Whitedown.
“He was on the road for eight hours and in the saddle for seven hours.
“In the first half the weather was kind but the wind and rain set in on the ride in.”
