Cyclists from across the county, and country, cycled round Bucks yesterday (Sunday 12th) to help fund the life changing work of WheelPower.
Individuals, clubs and families jumped on their bikes to tackle the 25, 65, or 110K, with the routes snaking across the Bucks countryside.
Some words from CEO of WheelPower, Martin McElhatton OBE.

The courses all started and ended at Stoke Mandeville Stadium, with Paralympian Ben Pritchard waiting at the finish line to present the medals. Ben, a former cyclist and triathlete, became paralysed from the waist down after a cycling crash in September 2016. He first took up indoor rowing during his rehab at Stoke Mandeville and was quickly spotted by British Rowing staff, joining the Para development squad in 2017 and representing team GB at the Toyoko games.
Riders of all ages and abilities collected sponsorship to help WheelPower, who are based at Stoke Mandeville and provide, promote and develop opportunities for disabled people to participate in sport and physical activity and lead healthy, active lives.
