A CYCLIST has taken part in a charity bike ride in memory of his father.

Nick Fisk lost his dad to heart disease, and decided to raise cash for the British Heart Foundation (BHF) by taking up the challenge of cycling 54 miles in the BHF London to Brighton bike ride.

Along with a friend, Kevin Simmons, Nick joined 27,000 cyclists on the ride last weekend.

Between them the pair, from Melbourn, hope to have raised £2,000 to help BHF.

Mr Fisk said: ""The British Heart Foundation's London to Brighton Bike is a fantastic event, knowing your riding for such a good cause really spurs you on. The atmosphere on the day is amazing and I am so proud to have contributed to the BHF's fight against heart disease"

Julie Sorrell, Head of Events at the British Heart Foundation said: "A big thanks must go to Kevin, Nick and all their sponsors for their support.

"As well as being an enjoyable event, the Ride is an important fundraiser for the BHF and the money raised enables us to make a huge difference in many people's lives," she said.
