Willows Wheelers ride again...
7 October 2015
Last weekend, the Willows wheelers were out again helping to raise money for the Marie Curie hospice via the Tommy Godwin Challenge. For those who don’t know, Tommy Godwin was a local cyclist who, in 1939, earned a world record when he completed one of the greatest sporting endurance feats of all time by cycling 75,065 miles in a year - an average of 205 miles per day.
The vets from Willows only managed to complete the much shorter distance of 62 miles (100 kilometres), but did so in well under 4 hours.
The team will now train over the winter to go further and faster next season.
The Willows Wheelers on the ride were Stephen Baines (Soft Tissue Surgery), Toby Gemmill (Orthopaedics) and Fergus Allerton (Internal Medicine).
