Less than year after op, man cycles to Paris

A MAN who had major surgery on his spine less than 12 months ago has completed a 260-mile cycle ride to Paris.

David Walker, 42, of Harpsden Road, Henley, needed two artificial discs to be inserted and spent three days in hospital and then months having physiotherapy.

The operation last July meant he had to give up his favourite sport of rowing but he still wanted to keep fit, so he agreed to join the cycle ride with 25 friends and work colleagues.

The cyclists, who were raising money for Cancer Research, took less than three days to complete the ride from the offices of Peter Brett Associates, a firm of infrastructure consultants in Reading, riding up to 75 miles a day.
