As a Napoleonic re-enactor of many years with 1/95th(Rifle) Regiment of Foot marching for Wellington in Flanders, Portugal, Spain, France & the USA and as a keen road cyclist, the challenge of the Prudential RideLondon 100 on 4th August, 2019, coupled with the opportunity to raise money for Help for Heroes seemed the ideal thing for me to do.

Celebrating the legacy for cycling created by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the ride starts from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, then follows a 100-mile route through the capital, into Surrey’s leg-testing climbs and finishes on The Mall in central London.

Re-enactors are especially drawn to H4H from the very nature of our hobby and that many are ex-service men and women. I know that any money you most generously donate will be so beneficial to those unsung heroes that protect our country and way of life.

It is important that you know that I am paying my own costs in taking part in this ride so all money raised by me goes to Help for Heroes.

Click here to donate now. :mrgreen:

I thank all of you that support my efforts; family, friends, fellow re-enactors from whatever period is your delight, and strangers that have brave & generous hearts.
