Lyme resident to cycle 100 miles for Alzheimer’s charity

LYME Regis resident Clinton Flux will be taking part in the London Ride 100 event on Sunday, August 4 to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Research UK.

The challenge will take Clinton on a 100-mile cycle ride around the capital city and surrounding areas, which he hopes to complete within eight hours.

Similar to the London Marathon, Clinton had to apply to take part and was one of 600 cyclists chosen by ballot from 70,000 applicants.

He has previously taken part in charity cycle rides, including one from Land’s End to Lyme Regis in aid of Candles On The Cobb, and around Wareham for Cancer Research UK.

Clinton chose to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Research UK because his family has been directly affected by the disease and he hopes more research can be carried out to help find a cure in the future.

To help him reach his fundraising target of £600, Clinton and his family will be hosting a curry and disco at Lyme Regis Football Club on Saturday, July 13, with entertainment kindly provided by Wessex Star Disco.

food will be provided by the Royal Lion Hotel.

Tickets cost £7.50 and are available from Finishing Touch hairdressers on Church Street or by contacting Clinton or his wife Karen via Facebook.

Raffle prizes on the night will include vouchers for the Harbour Inn, Axminster Waffle House, Chris’ Tat Shack, The Pilot Boat, Lyme Bay Cafe & Bar and Cellar 59, mixer taps from Total Plumbing, knife block and knives from Arthur Fordham & Co, beer from Lyme Regis Brewery, Jack Daniels from Simon Flux, a hoodie from Travis Perkins, hamper from Millers Farm Shop, fudge from Roly’s Fudge, and gifts from family and friends.
