Charity rider towers over his challenge


Nick Marshall, a solicitor of Marshall Glover Solicitors, Durham and Lancaster in England is swapped his briefs for a bicycle to cycle more than 2,600km (1200 miles) across Europe taking in some of the world's most famous towers en route.

A solicitor took in some of Europe’s most famous sights on a charity bike ride before ending his triumphant journey at Morecambe’s Clock Tower.

Nick Marshall, a solicitor at Marshall Glover Solicitors in Lancaster, cycled more than 1,300 miles and climbed 35,000 feet to raise money for children with special needs.

Nick said his aims were to complete the ride as a solo cyclist and raise funds for Hope 4 Kidz to provide specialist cycling equipment for disabled and special needs children.

He will also donate money to Alexandra House in Lancaster.

His journey began at the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy on June 30 and took him through the Alps, to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, across to London’s Tower Bridge and north to Blackpool Tower before he hung up his bicycle clips at 5pm in Morecambe on Sunday.

Donations are still being made to Nick’s Just Giving account and he is on target to raise more than £10,000 from the cycle ride, which took 10 days.

People can sponsor his quest by donating online at www.justgiving.com/pisatheaction.
