WEC is proud to support our Programme Manager Sean Morson on his recent cycle ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.
Sean cycled each of the 980 miles of Deloitte’s Ride Across Britain without once being caught by the dreaded support bus-known by riders as the Broom Wagon- that swept up struggling cyclists at the end of each ten-hour day.
Over the course of nine days, he climbed the equivalent of 1.6 times the height on Mount Everest, tackling such hills as the infamous Lecht in the Cairngorms with his usual gusto. Sean endured some difficult weather along the way, including 50mph cross-winds on day 8 but of course he persevered, delivered to programme, and raised an astonishing £8,000 in the process.
Those who know Sean will be unsurprised to learn that his trademark grin was sill in place when he reached John O’Groats. His wife reported that he was, however, sporting a few more greys!
Over the past year, Sean has demonstrated tremendous commitment to his training. We’re all very proud of what he has achieved, and pleased to be able to support his fundraising efforts for such a worthy cause.Richard Smith
