“The Thames Bridges Bike Ride is a fantastic family event, I had a stroke in 2009 and I strongly felt the need to 'give back' to a worthwhile organisation which helps people less fortunate than me, especially as stroke remains the leading cause of adult disability in the UK. The bike ride is a chance to raise money whilst having a good time”
