Fred Birkett's Eye to Eye Bike Ride

Fred and his cycling team enjoying a well earned pint after completing their ride.

On Sunday 22 July Fred Birkett completed his own version of our famous Eye to Eye walk - except his was a mammoth bike ride from the London Eye to a village in Peterborough called 'Eye' - a massive 118.66 miles! It took Fred and his good friend Dave (plus friends Bruce and Chad who joined just for the final section)10 hours and 20 minutes of furious pedalling, helped by some luck from our notoriously unreliable british weather. The team had friends and family out in support from all parts of the country from Bedford to Wigan to witness their phenomenal achievement - and perhaps even more impressive, so far Fred has raised a spectacular £2,539 for Moorfields Eye Charity, with contributions still arriving!

Massive congraulations to Fred and Dave (and Bruce and Chad) on such an impressive ride, and thanks so much for their amazing support. You truly are legends!
