Quigg Golden are proud to be supporting Jonathan Parker, one of our directors, in attempting to ride from London to Paris in world record time to try and raise £10,000 for cyclist fighting cancer. Having lost four family members to the disease he feels passionate about trying to help others who have suffered directly or indirectly. We have pledged a £1,000 donation towards this target and are providing assistance with organisation and logistics.
To be successful, the attempt will involve riding 170 miles at an average speed of around 26mph. Jonathan is being coached for the event by multiple national time trial champion, Matt Bottrill of Matt Bottrill Performance Coaching, who said “two of the biggest challenges are taking on board enough nutrition since Jonathan will be burning around 1100 calories an hour for nearly seven hours, and maintaining the aggressive aerodynamic position required for the same amount of time”.
