Cyclist tackles hardest climb on a Chopper
Published 08/05/14



A SOLICITOR from Henley is taking on the hardest climb in the Tour de France on a bicycle from the Seventies.

Matt Richardson, 47, was due to tackle the Mount Ventoux climb today (Friday) on a Raleigh Chopper.

He will cycle 21km and climb 1,500m, beginning in the village of Bedoin before making the return ride.

Mr Richardson, of Deanfield Avenue, is raising money for Leuka, which supports research into the causes and treatment of leukaemia and other blood cancers.

He has previously taken part in the L’Etape du Tour, which allows amateur cyclists to test their legs on the route of one of the mountain stages of the Tour de France. He also helped set up the G.S. Henley cycling club.

Go to www.virginmoneygiving.com/chopper_vs_Ventoux to make a donation to cancer research via Leuka.
