Pudsey cyclist prepares for 300-mile charity trek

A Pudsey cyclist is preparing to cycle 300 miles for charity on a hand-built bike frame first given to him 61 years ago.

Pudsey cyclist Tim Devereux  is looking to raise money for British charity Medical Aid for Palestinians, which is offering medical services during the current crisis in the West Bank, Gaza and Lebanon.

He said: “I’m planning to ride the 300 miles from Leeds to Brighton over five days, starting next week. I’ll be riding to raise money for Medical Aid for Palestinians.

“I am bowled over by the amount generous people have given already – nearly £1,700, with gift aid, But my wife says even though it’s reached the £1000 target, I still have to ride!).”

Mr Devereux’s ride will take place from 3 to 7 June.

He added: “For the past three years I have done a cycle ride over four or five days in the summer, covering about 250 miles. This year, I’m planning to ride the 301 miles from Leeds to Brighton in June. 

“I’ll be riding a bike based on an ancient hand-built frame given to me by a club mate in 1963! It now has posh wheels and modern transmission.”
