Alzheimer's Society

We lead the fight against dementia to end the distress it causes

Story

 

On 26th & 30th December I rode 538k (334 miles) to raise funds for the Alzheimer's Society.

The journey headed South West from Bath on 26th December, over Exmoor to Ilfacombe on the North Devon coast. From there I headed South across Devon, over Dartmoor to the South coast at Salcombe. Then it was the final push North East for just over 123 miles, through Exeter, Taunton and Bridgewater, finishing in Thornbury, North Bristol.

Here's a film of the ride:

·      Alzheimer’s Society champions the rights of people living with dementia and the millions of people who care for them
