On the 9th June PTS Area Director Alan Masters, embarked on a 100km moonlit bike ride through London to raise over £1500 for Cancer Research UK.
This was the first time that Alan had taken part in the Nightrider event and chose to take to his bike for charity to experience London at night with 3000 other participants. The journey was full of physical and mental challenges but, thanks to a gruelling training schedule, Alan was able to cross the finishing line in just over six hours.
The bike ride set off from Alexander Palace and passed over fifty famous landmarks, including Tower Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament.
Alan said: “Bike riding is a hobby of mine so it was great to be able to put this to good use and raise money for a great charity like Cancer Research UK. To cycle through the sunrise in the early hours was amazing. It’s not often you get the roads of London all to yourself so this was a real treat.”
Debbie Fitzgerald, Area Volunteer Manager at Cancer Research UK, said: “On behalf of everyone at Cancer Research UK, I would like to say a big thank you to Alan and I hope he can be proud of what he has achieved. People like Alan make a huge difference to our cause through their generous donations, helping us to make a difference to lives across the UK.”
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research and is the official partner charity of PTS.
