INSIGHT: Michael Pitt’s Pedal Power for Charity

  • Posted on

HOT on the pedals of the Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour de France, Pearson’s very own Michael Pitt once more took part in a summer challenge and along with 20,000 others took part in the Ride London 100 mile bike ride challenge to raise money for charity. 

In total he raised an amazing £1,300 for the Mines Advisory Group (MAG).

Thanks to some steady training he even blasted through the organisers nine hour time slot and cycled to victory in just 6 hours and 36 minutes

“After a hot spring and summer in training on the day it was 86 miles mainly in torrential rain,  but it’s amazing to have raised £1300 for land mines clearance and it’s thanks to everyone who supported and sponsored me along the way that I have beaten last years total by over £300,” said Michael.

Michael, Commercial Property and Employment Partner, at Oldham firm Pearson Solicitors and Financial Advisers has been in serious training for the Ride London100 challenge all summer with 6am practice runs.

“I enjoy a challenge and had worked hard on training, defrosting the bike on frosty winter days to more recent sessions in the summer heat, but on the day the support from the crowds keeps you going,” said Michael.

The race with over 20,000 participants celebrates the legacy of London 2012.  Starting at the Olympic Park it then went on through London and into the Surrey countryside. 

“Riding through London and passing all the landmarks and then finishing down the Mall was amazing,” he recalled.  “MAG is truly a deserving cause and something I have supported for a number of years and all money raised will help to save lives and build futures in communities affected by landmines all over the world.”
