Kidspace is proud to be supporting one of its managers in her quest to take on the London to Paris Bike Ride for charity.

Becky Thorne will take part in the London to Paris bike ride this summer.

The grueling 300-mile event begins at Crystal Palace and ends at the Eiffel Tower.

Mum of two Becky will be part of a 22 strong team from her local gym and together they are aiming to raise £24,000 to support Saint Francis Hospice and the British Heart Foundation.

Becky, who has worked at Kidspace for 12 years, said: “We are 22 average gym members who want to make a change to the lives of others. Cycling almost 300 miles from London to Paris will take hours of dedication in training & preparation.

“However, this sacrifice is a fraction of what others do each and every day when caring for people who are ill. Help us by donating today and together we can make a difference.”

The ride is just over 271 miles and the team will be cycling 85 miles on day one, 71 miles on day two, 65 miles day three and 50 miles on day four.
