The fantastic 60-mile ride through Hertfordshire’s countryside had a mix of challenging climbs (total of 3,100 feet) and sweeping roads through pretty villages.
Greg Stuttle, GJD’s Business Development Manager commented: “The Herts 60 mile ride was a great way for me to get back up to speed and welcome in the spring, while helping the Willow Foundation raise vital funds for them to provide uplifting and unforgettable Special Days for seriously ill 16-40 year olds”.
Willow was founded in 1999 by former Arsenal goalkeeper and TV presenter, Bob Wilson and his wife, Megs, as a lasting memorial to their daughter, Anna, who died of cancer aged 31.
Since 1999 Willow has fulfilled more than 15,000 Special Days for young adults living with life-threatening conditions such as cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s disease.
The Herts 60-mile bike ride was a great start to Greg’s cycling challenges for 2019.
Greg is doing a number of rides this year, the main ones include: Ride London, which is a 100 mile ride, on closed roads using the route from the 2012 Olympic road race. He will be one of 25,000 riders starting at the Olympic Park in Stratford and then after heading out into Surrey and taking on Box and Leith Hill we will then finish on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.
Greg will be raising funds for Mencap on this occasion and in September he will take part in the Essex100, another 100 mile route. For this event he will be raising funds for the charity Kidscan which is GJD’s charity of the year.
