Last week Graham Wilson from Ivybridge in South Devon, reached the half way point of his epic journey around the North Sea Cycle Route to raise money for the Devon Wildlife Trust.
Graham left from Harwich on April 24 and has been circumnavigating the North Sea coastline, keeping in touch with the Devon Wildlife Trust, the charity he has chosen to support for his latest cycling challenge, via his blog, email and by phone.
He reached the half way point at Kristiansand in Norway last week so is on course to finish in the 70 days if the weather holds.
Graham said: “It has been an adventure up to the half way stage and I hope the remainder of the journey is just as exciting. The scenery has been just fantastic, and the wildlife must surely thrive in these natural habitats that I am going through. One thing I have noticed is the more positive attitude towards cyclists, where motorists give way to bike riders and young children cycle to school.”
Cat Loudwill, corporate and community relations officer from Devon Wildlife Trust, said: ‘It’s been great to hear from Graham and to know he’s safely reached the half way point, must be down hill from now on in. He’s doing such a great job helping to raise thousands of pounds for local wildlife projects and his blog is full of his exploits and great photos! There is still time to support him so please donate!’
You can follow Graham’s exploits on his blog and sponsor him at his challenge website.
