Herts 60 mile bike ride

Greg Stuttle, GJD’s Business Development Manager was among charity cycle riders to complete the Herts 60 mile bike ride on Sunday, May 5. Greg completed the ride to raise money for the Willow Foundation, a national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil special days.

The 60-mile ride through Hertfordshire’s countryside had a mix of climbs (total of 3100 feet) and sweeping roads through villages.

Greg said afterwards: “The Herts 60 mile ride was a great way for me to get back up to speed and welcome in the spring, while helping the Willow Foundation raise vital funds for them to provide uplifting and unforgettable Special Days for seriously ill 16-40 year olds.”

Willow was founded in 1999 by former Arsenal goalkeeper and TV presenter, Bob Wilson, pictured second left, and his wife Megs, as a lasting memorial to their daughter, Anna, who died of cancer aged 31. Since 1999 Willow has fulfilled more than 15,000 ‘special days’ for young adults living with life-threatening conditions such as cancer, motor neurone disease, cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s disease.

The 60-mile was a start to Greg’s cycling challenges for 2019. His main ones include: Ride London, 100 miles on closed roads using the route from the 2012 Olympic road race. He will be one of 25,000 riders starting at the Olympic Park in Stratford and then after heading into Surrey and taking on Box and Leith Hill to a finish on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace. Greg will be raising funds for Mencap.

In September he will take part in the Essex100, another 100 mile route. For this event he will be raising funds for the charity Kidscan which is GJD’s charity of the year.
