Leeds based Henry Erdozain, a senior surveyor for property consultancy Carter Jonas, has completed an epic bike ride from London to Newcastle in under 24 hours to help raise more than £1400 for charity.
Henry, together with his friend Nick Boxall-Hunt began the 310 mile journey from Finsbury Park and arrived in Newcastle the following day – 35 minutes inside their target time.
The cycle ride was in support of Action for A-T, a charity set up by a friend of Henry’s and Nick’s which works to find a cure for Ataxia-Telangiectasia – a rare, genetic and degenerative childhood disease that affects multiple systems of the body.
Henry said: “Nick and I really wanted to do something in support of Action for A-T – a charity that is close to both of our hearts.
“The bike ride was a great experience and we did it knowing that every penny raised will help fund research into a disease with no known cure.”
The pair have raised £1,434 for the charity so far but it is still possible to donate via their JustGiving page www.justgiving.com/smoketotoon.
