Tony Completes Charity Bike Ride Challenge

With 500 riders saddling up at the O2, Tony rode a grueling 328 miles in just four days to reach his final destination in the heart of Paris, under the Eiffel Tower. Passing through historic towns, World War battlefields and riverside routes whilst braving the unpredictable weather, there were physical and mental highs and lows. Tony said: "The bike ride was a truly amazing and elating experience and at the same time a massive challenge. I cycle quite frequently and this was a great way to raise money for such a worthy cause." Hundreds of people turned out to greet the cyclists in their last leg as they rode through the Arc de Triomphe on Sunday 24th July 2011, which Tony describes as 'the most incredible moment'.
