Rev Richard Moy, one of the Vicars of Christ Church W4, has completed a 4 day cycle ride across the New Forest and the South Downs Way raising money for the next phase of building development at St Albanís Acton Green, and for projects that Christ Church supports in West Uganda.

The 145 mile ride was mainly off road, and saw him ascend and descend over 4000m on mountain bike. It also brought him down memory lane to some of his childhood haunts, and he made time to catch up with a former CCTG friend and colleague, Mike Tufnell who is based in the Dorset area.

He finished on his 40th birthday and was supported in the ride by his younger brothers and father.

The donation tally so far is £5695 including gift aid. Anyone in the local community wishing to donate can do so on Richard Moy's fundraising page.

Before the cycle ride, Richard had to train hard for six weeks, cutting out alcohol and sugar, and putting in lots of exercise. He says he is delighted with the results.

On his JustGiving page he wrote, "A taxing route, mainly off-road, with support from my younger brothers outriding me, and Dad driving the support car.

"This ride goes past many of our childhood days out on the South Downs. It begins at Mike Tufnell's new church in Canford, Dorset, where I'm speaking at their annual big outdoor service on the Sunday morning and ends at the Eastbourne.

"And at the end I'll be 40! "

No doubt there will be plenty of celebrations with the family and at Christ Church W4.
