Nigel said afterwards:
To all my kind supporters and sponsors
We finished! Despite the mileages reported in the press, 294 of us, including 50 wounded, cycled 425 miles from Paris to London over 5 cycling days finishing with a tremendous reception in London yesterday. At Blackheath we were joined by 1300 other cyclists who had cycled from all parts of the country for the biggest cycle ride ever into London.
We had a team from The Sun (newspaper) with us and their reports are better than anything I can produce, so here are the links:
Nigel’s Facebook page is here, with his detailed observations about the ride.
The Woolwich victim, Drummer Rigby, was wearing a Help for Heroes T-shirt when he was murdered. So many people subsequently visited the charity’s website either to pledge money or to buy T-shirts for themselves, that the site briefly fell over. You can make a contribution to Help for Heroes via Nigel Murray’s donations page here.
As I write, the total raised is £5,841.60, with £771.25 in Gift Aid. There have been some extremely generous donations from Nigel’s many friends in the eDiscovery industry. We can get him to his target of £7,500 and beyond.
