Huge thanks and congratulations to Jonathan Quicke, Hamish Van Gruisen and Tom Kerridge for completing their epic bike ride from London to Rome in 12 days yesterday raising over £8,000 for Walking With The Wounded.
A special thank you to the support driver George Coleman for coming to the rescue and supporting the team everyday as they made their way to Rome, and to the kind sponsor The Ultimate Travel Company who very generously covered the cost of their transportation.
“On behalf of the three of us I think it’s safe to say the last 12 days has certainly been an epic challenge.
Everyone’s messages of support and donations throughout got us up those never ending hills when the body wanted to give up, and you all helped us push through those extra hours as we battled through France and Italy. We completed the challenge in 12 days cycling a total of 130 hours, travelling almost 1,500 miles. We were unbelievably lucky throughout, with the weather, only 12 punctures and 2 crashes.” – Jonathan Quicke, Hamish Van Gruisen, Tom Kerridge
