Anca's Pedal to Paris

When Anca and husband, Chris, set off to ride from Chichester to Chartres (near Paris), they did so knowing that it would be tough, but that they'd be raising funds for two charities very close to their hearts, Smile4Wessex and Brain Tumour Research. Riding a road bike was a new challenge for Anca, but she was absolutely determined to complete the 200-mile route - and here, in her own words, is a taste of why it meant so much to Anca.

"Back in 2002 I suffered a subdural haematoma. Following that I was diagnosed with a benign vascular brain tumour and underwent brain surgery at Wessex Neurological Centre under the care of the most amazing surgeon and staff! My battle with this tumour continues, but I'm determined to fight it and raise awareness and funds to join the fight against neurological conditions including brain tumours."

With 11 hours in the saddle on Saturday, then another early start Sunday, at times cycling into 35mph headwinds and freezing rain it was every bit as hard as they thought it would be, but we're delighted they and their fellow riders made it to their destination. Thank you both for your tremendous support.
