Bob fulfils cycle dream
A PORTISHEAD grandfather has achieved a lifelong dream to cycle down the Champs Elyse.
Bob Meacham successfully completed a three-day charity bike ride from London to Paris, raising about �2,000 for the Prostate Cancer Charity.
He said: “For as long as I can remember I’ve dreamt of cycling down the Champs Elyse and taking part in a charity bike ride seemed a great excuse to achieve this.”
Bob, a 51-year-old sales manager who has lived in Portishead for more than 20 years, chose to support the charity because his grandfather died of prostate cancer.
He added: “I think it’s time we men realised that prostate cancer is one of the biggest killers of men in the UK and having experienced the loss of someone close because of it, made me determined to highlight it as well as raise money for the charity.”
