London Cycling Campaign member rides to Paris in memory of wife Hilary killed in Barnet lorry crash

London Cycling Campaign member Geoff Lee is taking part in a charity ride to Paris this summer in memory of his wife Hilary, who was killed by a lorry while cycling through Barnet town centre last year.

Hilary Lee, a retired social worker, was knocked down outside St John the Baptist Church in High Barnet as she cycled home in October 2012.

Geoff said, "I've been absolutely amazed and moved by the generous response to my appeal for the bike ride that I will be doing in July in memory of Hilary, raising money for the Noah's Ark Children's Hospice.

"My choice of charity, apart from it being a very worthy cause, is that they are in the process of establishing a hospice for children in Barnet on the site of the Barnet Countryside Centre, where Hilary worked for a number of years."

Asked about his training regime, Geoff said, "The only problem so far has been the weather: whenever I go out on my bike to clock up a few miles I get frozen, soaked, or both. Some spring sunshine would be welcome."

Geoff's London-to-Paris ride takes place from 17-21 July, which means he arrives in the French capital on the same day as the Tour de France.

"Hopefully Wiggins and co won't slow us down," Geoff said. 

Geoff's hoping to raise as much money as possible for the hospice, so please donate via his Just Giving page

You can also send cheques (payable to 'Noah's Ark Children's Hospice') to Geoff at:
