Andrew Lawrence, of Sandycombe Road, Kew, completed the ride at the end of last month, raising £3,500 for Interserve England and Wales in the process. The intense journey saw him overcome tricky mountain terrain, hot temperatures and over 10 punctures. “Everybody should try and do something they think is impossible. Hitting the finish line just felt unreal,” commented Andrew. Not to interested in resting up, he now has plans to enter next years London marathon and complete it in less than 2hrs 35mins. Congratulations Andrew, its a magnificent achievement!
