The 52 mile route started at Victoria Park in Hackney and took in lots of beautiful Essex countryside before finishing at Priory Park in Southend. There was also the option of going via Shoeburyness to add another 13 miles to the route, and despite his bike chain coming off, David chose to battle on!
David purchased his bike especially for this event and practiced hard at Hainault Forest in the lead up to his cycle. He said "I'm always happy to help such a fantastic cause, please sign me up for more! Next time I could definitely do it in a faster time, maybe in a team… who’s up for it?"
