Hayley and Tony’s Cycle from London to Paris

Hayley and Tony have recently donned their Lycra (and EPT tops) to cycle, virtually from London to Paris an incredible total of 245 miles over 4 days. We are so grateful to them for embarking on this epic challenge, raising funds and awareness and no doubt great leg muscle.

Hayley’s Story:

I sadly suffered an Ectopic Pregnancy in May this year after 7 years of trying for a baby and even though I didn’t have to undergo any medical treatment as such it was still a very upsetting time. As soon as I was physically well I decided that I wanted to do something to help and raise awareness of Ectopic Pregnancies and as I so enjoy cycling I thought why not complete a cycle challenge!

Both my husband and I took part in the challenge which entailed a virtual 245 mile cycle from London to Paris on our exercise bike.

I really enjoyed the challenge, as hard as it was I kept thinking about our end goal which was to raise awareness. We did this through social media and our Just Giving page.

I would encourage others to fund raise for this amazing charity, your challenge doesn’t need to be anything fancy or extravagant as long as it’s something you enjoy and it achieves what you want it to. I am already planning my next event!
