Keith Underhill: June 2015
Thank you all for your support and encouragement as I undertook the iconic London to Brighton bike ride on 21st June for the British Heart Foundation. This year's ride was their 40th Anniversary.
Deji, Pete and I all safely completed the course. There were a total of 22,000 riders which made it quite chaotic at times to say the least.
I managed to complete the ride of just over 52 miles in 4:54 and according to my trusty bike computer, burnt 2,815 calories in the process!
Thank you for all those who have been so generous and sponsored me, to date I have raised around £700 (plus gift aid) and I know there is some more money still to come in. If you would like to sponsor me, you can still do so by simply going to my Just Giving webpage at www.justgiving.com/ministeronhisbike. You can also donate £3 via text by texting REVD59£3 to 70070. Thank you!
