Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
In order to celebrate my 80th birthday, I am riding 80 laps of Aldersley Stadium in Wolverhampton on Sunday 26 January 2020 in aid of Compton Care – a charity close to my heart.
Many cyclists choose to ride a distance the same as their milestone birthday but this event will be special and unique. At 11am the Mayor of Wolverhampton will start the event and I will cycle 80 laps (approximately 22 miles) with friends. At the same time, there will also be spin bikes by the side of the track where other riders will be matching our efforts on the track.
As a former World Champion, Aldersley Stadium is close to my heart as it played a major part in my career. It is where I raced as a youngster and I also won a British National Team Pursuit Championship as a member of the Wolverhampton Wheelers at this track. It is where I prepared for my World Championships and Wolverhampton City Council honoured me by naming a road nearby the Hugh Porter Way.
I am a Patron of Compton Care and so the best birthday gift you could give would be to make a donation to this extremely worthy cause which supports local people with complex and incurable illnesses to live their best life possible.
Please support me if you can and if your donation could contain an 8 in it then so much the better – whether it is £8, £28 or £88 it will all make a difference.
Thank you so much
