Club coach completes NIGHTRIDER™ Challenge for C4C
Jun 14, 2011
Martyn Senior, a cricket coach and player for Kent based side, Town Malling CC took on the NIGHTRIDER™ Challenge on the 11th June and raised over £400 for Cricket for Change.
Martyn said; "Depsite some minor bumps and bruises it was really enjoyable and left me with some fantastic stories to tell as well!"
This was a charity cycle ride with a difference....it was at night! Martyn went on the 100km moonlit ride through London while the capital slept and raised much needed funds for C4C.
The challenge started Crystal Palace in south east Londonat 11.10pm (11th June) and finished about 7.30am on Sunday morning (12th June) for a well earned breakfast.
Martyn's actual cycle time was only 5 hours 40 mins which wasn’t too bad for various reasons. The total time consisted of:
5hrs 40mins – Riding Time
50 mins – scheduled breaks
40 minutes – repairing punctures (of a cycling friend - not mine!)
1hr 20mins – STUCK AT TRAFFIC LIGHTS OR IN TRAFFIC!
Despite the 'traffic light stops', Martyn ticked off along the way a number of London's most famous streets and landmarks.
Thank you, Martyn, on behalf of everyone involved with Cricket for Change.
