And after he heard about the amazing work of some good friends of the family in India who are rescuing, feeding and providing a home to children and their mothers trapped in terrible conditions despite the challenges of the pandemic, he was keen to ride to raise money to support them.

So he aimed to complete a 300 mile (482km). We may just sneak in another 11 miles to make it 500km!
