Not put off by the cancellation of all sporting events, local man, Adam Pullen, 43, from Oxted is set to cycle 100 miles on Sunday 16th August (what would have been the day of the Prudential Ride London) to raise money for local charity, Sight for Surrey.
Sight for Surrey supports people all over Surrey with a sight and hearing loss, and during the current health pandemic has suffered a massive dip in fundraising due to the cancellation of all group and face to face events, whilst their support services are in high demand.
Adam said, “Sight for Surrey is an amazing charity which provide support for people who are blind or partially sighted, Deaf, deafblind or hard of hearing. They provide specialist, hands-on, practical support that helps people to lead an independent life. A large part of their life changing work depends on voluntary donations and I am pleased to be raising money for such a worthwhile cause”.
Adam only took up cycling in March and has cycled for 2-3 hours every Sunday, increasing his distance in July to 86 miles a week to get him fighting fit and in tip top condition for the gruelling 100 mile ride. Adam has split his ride into 2 courses, the first section being 12.9 miles, the 2nd 6.4miles and plans to ride continuously with only a short stop for water and a snack.
