Mike’s Blazing Saddle

May 22, 2015 by Lara Lucas

IMG_1839Mike Alldridge from Hamworthy in Dorset will be celebrating his 76th birthday by cycling from Dorset to London in aid of Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance on Wednesday 27th May. Mike will embark on his solo cycling adventure at 04.00am and aims to reach the Union Jack Club in Waterloo, London at some point in the afternoon. He will give his legs a well-earned rest by staying in London overnight and returning home the following day by train.

Mike said: “I shall be 76 on the intended day and feel this may be my last chance to achieve my ambition. I feel passionate about supporting the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance as it is one of the charities that our car club supports and we have visited their airbase. I was most impressed at the sterling work they do and the lives they save. They need every pound they can get and I hope that my small contribution will help a little.” We wish Mike all the best and hope that he enjoys further birthday celebrations when he returns home.
