Matt Black and his manager Jon Cox completed their mammoth fundraising three legged bike ride from John O’Groats to Lands End between 4 and 25 May.
Affectionately called “the hero” of the ride by Matt, Jon discovered that he was the first one legged cyclist ever to complete the 952 mile distance.
Jon lost his leg when he was four after being run over by a lorry. It didn’t put him off cycling though and he’s ridden a bike since he was seven.
Matt and Jon trained for a year to complete the charity challenge with three legs, two bikes and a piano. Comedy pianist, Matt Black gigged at 18 locations along the route to raise extra money. With funds still to come in, Jon and Matt have raised about £5,000 of the £10,000 total they aimed for in aid of the charity Wings4Warriors.
Cycling 50 miles a day in variable weather, one of the highlights of the journey for Matt was when the Bridgwater Chapter of Hells Angels accompanied the pair through Bridgwater.
