The event was to raise money for Cure Leukaemia and determined to do his bit Alex decided to complete the challenge on a static bike in his house.
He explained: “This month I should have completed my second London 2 Paris bike ride for Cure Leukaemia with more than one hundred amazing people all raising funds for this fantastic charity.
“The ride covers 300 miles over four days.
“Sadly, this event like many others has been postponed due to the global pandemic and current lockdown restrictions.”
He continued: “My friend Adam Joyce was diagnosed with leukaemia when he was just 22, following his successful treatment he became involved with the charity and introduced me to the great things they are doing to develop new drugs and transplant treatments for patients with blood cancers.
“I have been training hard for six months and would still like to raise some money for Cure Leukaemia, so I decided that I am going cycle the distance from London to Paris in one ride, on my smart trainer and using the virtual cycling app Zwift.”
Alex insteads to start this ultra-distance ride tomorrow, Saturday, June 27, at 5am and he estimates it will take around 20 hours to complete.
He added: “Anyone wishing to support me and Cure Leukaemia in this crazy challenge can follow the link to my just giving page below.”
