A FIREFIGHTER has successfully battled through temperatures of up to 38°C to complete a 565km cycle challenge from London to the Eiffel Tower in aid of others in his profession dealing with life-changing injuries.
Station commander Ryan Hall’s journey, which started from Blackheath in the heart of London, took four days and finished on Saturday.
He cycled between seven and nine hours per day on some of the hottest days of the year, with temperatures ranging from 32°C to 38°C.
His goal was to raise £2,000 for The Firefighters Charity.
‘The charity provides a lifetime of crucial support to the fire and rescue service community, whether that is dealing with a life-changing injury, illness, or an unexpected curve ball thrown up by life,’ Mr Hall explained on his JustGiving fundraising page.
Help offered by the charity includes mental and physical health support, nursing services, assistance navigating retirement, and support for families.
Mr Hall is already well on the way to meeting his target and is continuing to fundraise until 30 September.
