Meet Peter

Peter has ridden bikes all his life, mostly as a commuter, but more recently as an ‘enthusiast’ in endurance cycling. He rides a mix of terrain with a gravel bikes for offroad (great in the winters) and a road bike for the smoother stuff during summer. Like all cyclists he spends a lot of time looking at Strava!

Peter, we salute your efforts to fundraise for DRA by entering in the strenuous Fondo event. Best of luck!
