The Fence Club London to Paris bike ride has raised over £30,000. Robert Mann, Phil Green, Mary Wood, Steve Dawkins, Robert Green, Phil Hooper, Kevin Jones, Roddy Bridges and Steve Wilks, started in Greenwich on the 28th June. They were aided by Dennis McMullen, James Mann and Kirsty Baxter, who were on hand in the Campervan with drinks, Vaseline and bacon rolls.
The route took the riders past some notable spots such as Biggin Hill and the South Downs, which seemed to have large slopes everywhere. In France, the trip to Paris took the riders along the Route Verte, which has just opened in time for the London Olympics.
The only mishap of the tour was a crash 2okm outside of Paris for Robert Mann who ended up in hospital with 2 broken ribs and a compressed lung. However, all nine riders made it back safely to the UK on Sunday 1st July, and a number of hardly used bikes are for sale cheap.
