The 212 mile ride, which ran from the summit of Snowdon in North Wales to Stoney Cove started with the young rider falling off his bike while descending the mountain. 

But he didn’t let his injuries stop him from completing the ride, which was used to raise money for Rainbows Children Hospice.

“I cut my chin and got a few bruises and grazes. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to continue but I got back on my bike and carried on” he recalled.

“I stopped off to see a local doctor who put a stitch in my chin and I managed to keep going.”

The proud father of the rider said, “I have to say he was pretty battered and he made me very proud when he insisted that he was going to continue with the ride.”

The rider, his uncle and father all took part in the rider which saw them tackle roads, bridal paths and canal towpaths. 

If anyone was struggling we would help each other to carry on,” he added

The young charity worker managed to raise more than £1200 for the charity,  easily beating their target of £1000.
