Congratulations to Mike Bishop a member of Puddenecks and his son Lee who cycled from Clapham Common to Brighton on Sunday 22nd June 2013 for Lifelites and the Puddenecks club. I think if you ask Mike it proved a little more difficult and trying than he had originally thought it would be but a great achievement nevertheless.
