Nigel Murray makes it to Paris

Hands up all all those who were not convinced that Nigel Murray of Trilantic would manage the 350 miles from the Normandy Beaches to Paris. On a bicycle. In six days. Here is the photograph to prove you wrong.

Back in January, I wrote rather cynically that “I did once see him run, but that was across a pavement to a cab in the rain, so barely counts as an exception to the general rule”, the general rule involving good food, beer and cigarettes. I did not doubt he would do it, though.

The cause was Help for Heroes which supports wounded servicemen. Nigel raised £5,727.87 for this good cause. The event overall has apparently raised over one million pounds.

Nigel kept a record of each day’s events, covering both the cycling and the interesting – and, I suspect, rather emotive – stops which were made at places of significance. His donations page remains open for those who want to help him get past the £6,000 mark.

Well done, Nigel.
