St Albans businessmen heading to Paris on charity ride
TWO St Albans businessmen have set off on a 314-mile cycling challenge from London to France to raise over �3,000 for Action Medical Research.
Steve Macdonald and Danny Williams have been training for months for the London to Paris Cycling Challenge in aid of Action Medical Research.
The pair will ride more than 80 miles a day through the French countryside before reaching Paris where their arrival has been timed to coordinate with the finish of the Tour de France.
Steve, who works at Property and Commercial Finance, said: “We will arrive in Paris just prior to the finish of the Tour de France so will be able to take up a position on the Champs Elyees and watch the riders coming through.”
They will be joined by 750 other cyclists for the event and among their sponsors have been Aitchison Raffety and SA Law in St Albans.
