Shackleton Foundation trustee, Tim Fright, is currently cycling from London to Geneva on a fold-up Brompton bike to raise money for the charity.
He has written an update from the road:
“Overall the going’s been good so far and I’ve been lucky enough to see some fantastic parts of the English and French countryside. A few minor mishaps with the sat nav taking me on unpaved roads, closed roads and farm tracks has been deeply frustrating but dinner and bed never fail to make up for the travails of the day!
Right knee a little upset so now the fun begins as the second half is definitely more hilly! Please do keep that sponsorship coming – it is both much appreciated, and going to a very good cause!”
