The cycle ride was in support of Action for A-T, a charity set up by a friend of Nick and Henry’s, which works to find a cure for Ataxia-Telangiectasia – a rare, genetic and degenerative childhood disease that affects multiple systems of the body.

Nick said: “The bike ride was a massive physical and mental challenge but a fantastic experience and we are so pleased and grateful to have raised so much money.

“To do this in support of Action for A-T, a charity that is close to both our hearts, also means a lot as it is a relatively unknown disease and charity.
