MEMBERS of the Portishead and Clevedon Triathlon Club (PAC Tri) helped support Mark O’Hare (centre) during his solo charity ride from John O’Groats to Lands End.
Mark from Portishead, spent a week riding in difficult conditions, to raise money for CLIC Sergeant. Mark decided to raise money for the charity after a family member was treated for a tumour.
The members of PAC Tri volunteered to give Mark some company as he left Portishead recently on his way to the final leg of his solo ride.
During a Saturday morning training ride, the group from Pac Tri rode with Mark from Portishead to Clevedon and through to Cheddar where he carried on his route.
“We were more than happy to lend a hand and support Mark with his ride, as members of a triathlon club we are well aware of how lonely long rides can be when out training. But that is nothing compared to Mark’s mammoth solo effort,” said David Prout from PAC Tri.
“We will be having a whip round in the club to add to the considerable amount that Mark has already raised for a great cause,” David added.
