In the sad­dle for 100-mile chal­lenge

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

A busi­ness­man is tak­ing part in a chal­lenge in which he will get on his for a bike for char­ity.

Clive Gawler, the founder and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Red Alert and Red Alert Tele­care in Ash­ford, is cy­cling 100 miles on Sun­day (July 30) as part of the Pru­den­tial 100, in order to raise money for the An­thony Nolan blood can­cer char­ity.

Mr Gawler, who is aim­ing to raise £3,000, said: “I en­joy the oc­ca­sional bike ride but this event is quite a chal­lenge. It’s a 100-mile bike ride through Lon­don and Sur­rey in the com­pany of 25,000 other rid­ers.”

Mr Gawler will be­gin his ride at the Olympic Sta­dium in East Lon­don, and then go through cen­tral Lon­don and 70 miles of Sur­rey coun­try­side be­fore a fin­ish on The Mall.

Mr Gawler said that he was in­spired to join the ride by Alice Byron, the daugh­ter of a fam­ily friend, who died of a blood dis­ease at the age of 21.
