Keeping you up to date with the progress of MPA’s Creative Director, Nick Hunt, as he tackles a London to Paris fundraising cycle ride over three days…
5 September 2015
The final day! Leaving Evreux this morning the pelaton headed East through charming traditional French towns and villages, stopping for lunch at Septeuil. Then it was one last push, or hopefully peddle, as they headed towards the finish line.
On reaching Paris the 120 riders regrouped at the Bois de Boulogne, a large public park located along the western edge of the 16th arrondissement, so that they could all cycle together along the Champs-Elysee, around the Arc de Triomphe and onto the Eiffel Tower and the finishing line.
He made it!
A very well deserved glass of champagne as reward for making it that far, and Nick and his compatriots could finally relax. They also had the official group photos taken, which we will share with you when we get them. Tonight, after a chance to freshen up they will all get together for a well earned celebratory dinner.
What an amazing thing to do. Nick is passionate about what MPA does, and where we do it, which is why he’s chosen to have his fundraising efforts on this challenge go to the charity. All of us who benefit from the work of MPA are extremely grateful, both to Nick and to everyone who sponsored him. At the time of writing this Nick has reached his target, in fact, it’s slightly more. Thank you to everyone who has made a donation to help support the work of MPA. We’ll be keeping the page open for a while longer and would greatly appreciate any further support. His JustGiving page is here :
Tomorrow Nick has a free morning in Paris, the team think that, should he be able to move, he’s bound to head for the nearest art gallery, or cafe, or preferably an art gallery with a cafe! Then its on the Eurostar back to London; across London, with bike, to the Manchester train, and finally home. He’s taking Monday off!
Right, who wants to do the challenge next year? 😉
