Entering Ljubljana, Slovenia on 18 October

Intrepid cyclist Jeremy Davis has completed his fundraising cycle from Amble to Slovenia, to raise money for the Cure Parkinson’s Trust.  Jeremy successfully completed his trip, and raised over £7000- a huge sum of money which will be going towards a very good cause.

This journey was inspired by an encounter with fellow cyclist Dr Tilo Kunath, after Jeremy’s sister, Philippa Wheeler, had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s.

Jeremy would like to thank everyone for their kind donations, and wrote on his Facebook page:

“Now back in Amble for the roundup of what was an extraordinary time with you all. Couldn’t have done it without you (that’s for sure), the people met along the way plus the fab weather. So a BIG THANK YOU! We have currently raised £6,067.53 + £1,145.50 Gift Aid – WOW! It shall be placed in the good hands of Cure Parkinson’s Trust to support one of their worthwhile projects.

“I left Amble on 19th August and arrived in Ljubljana on the 18th October amounting to 61 days. Pedalled over 1,800 miles in 50 days, with only 9 hours of rain in total! Unbelievable.”
