Following the fantastic Ben Nevis walk earlier this month, which raised a staggering £5,400 for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), Ian Mattioli, Clare Mattioli, Alex Mattioli and fellow cycling enthusiast Elliott Clarke set off from Leicester this lunchtime for a bike ride in memory of our dear friend and colleague Ketan, who we sadly lost last year.
The aim is to undertake a 160-mile bike ride from Leicester, up the east coast and come back on Friday evening.
Ian said: "This is a celebration for Ketan and something the family and our newly adopted son Elliott (!!) really want to achieve. We don't have any set targets or agenda and we will ride until we can't ride any more... just as Ketan would have approved of."
We are in the process of setting up a formal trust for Ketan's wife and boys to help support them in the future, particularly for the boys' school and university costs. We will release details of this as soon as possible.
