Nick’s Fundraising Ride – The Countdown!

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…

2 September 2015

Well he’s on the train heading for London and the 8.30am start for tomorrow’s ride.  All the months of training, disrupted on a few occasions by injury and accident, are behind him, there is no more time to prepare – this is it!

Oddly, packing has caused the most consternation over the last two days.  ‘Travel light’, the organisers say, but that’s not so easy when they send a two page ‘must bring’ list.  The first aid items alone total 13, which has slightly unnerved Nick!

Luggage will be in a van while they are riding, but Nick needs to get across London with his bike and luggage to reach the starting point.  If you’ve ever seen a turtle stuck on its back, you’ll have an idea of what Nick looked like when he put his fully loaded rucksack on for the first time – no way is he going to be riding a bike wearing that, especially across London.  Losing all contents bar the official ‘kit list’ didn’t help much.  Let’s hope he can find a helpful cabbie at Euston station!  Good luck Nick…
