A St Albans cyclist riding from one tip of Europe to the other has pedalled his way through the first third of his 3,500-mile fundraising trip.
Passing moose on the Norwegian highways, Max Jenkins of team Vélo Tab took time out on Saturday to test the Trondheim cycle lift, a ski-lift for cyclists, to celebrate their first 1,000 miles.
Max said: “The lift would not be out of place for cyclists on Holywell Hill, linking the Alban Way to the heart of St Albans.”
The Cambridge University quartet of Max, Abbie, Chris and Emma are riding from Nordkapp in northern Norway to Punta de Tarifa on the southern tip of Spain to raise money for Help for Heroes as well as Jimmy’s Cambridge, a night shelter for the homeless.
Max said the Norwegian roads were “among the best he’s ever ridden,” and that they were “embarrassingly superior to many of the roads in rural Hertfordshire”.
