Team Stoll Rider Goes The Extra Mile
On Sunday 29th July, fifteen Team Stoll riders are due to take to the roads and cycle 100 miles from London to Surrey, as part of the Prudential Ride London. Our fantastic supporters are taking part to support the work of Stoll and help make a difference to the lives of vulnerable Veterans.
However, one Team Stoll rider is going the extra mile. Air Commodore Al Seymour is currently serving in the RAF as Commandant of the Air Warfare Centre. Just a few weeks ago whilst time trialling for the RAF, Al unfortunately fractured his collarbone and 3 ribs which means he is unable to take part in the Ride London race.
However, rather than forgo the challenge completely, Al will be joining the cyclists virtually on Sunday by cycling the 100 miles on a static bike from his garage. Al said: “As a proud member of the military, supporting Veterans is a cause very close to my heart. I was disappointed not to be able to take part in the ride with Team Stoll because of my injury, but I couldn’t miss out altogether. So I thought, I’ll cycle from home and do the equivalent – I love a challenge! I’ll be starting at 4 am and hope to finish around 9.30 – 10 am.”
Al is aiming to raise £500 and still has some way to go to his target. You can donate to his challenge page here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/alistair-seymour
All money raised by Team Stoll will go towards the work of Stoll, housing and helping vulnerable Veterans. Stoll is the leading provider of supported housing and offer support services to over 600 people each year. Our work enables vulnerable and disabled Veterans to lead fulfilling, independent lives.
