Cuffley cyclist first over line in London to Hove charity ride
COMPLETING a 60-mile cycle ride and conquering one of Britain’s most notorious valleys is an achievement in itself – but a financial advisor from Cuffley has gone one better, and finished first.
Conor MacSweeney, 33, was first over the line at this year’s Capital to Coast cycle challenge, finishing the 60-mile course in just three hours and 42 minutes.
The gruelling challenge sets off from Esher, Surrey, and winds through Sussex and over the infamous Devil’s Dyke, before finishing in Hove.
Around 1,500 people took part in the race this year, raising an estimated �250,000 for five different charities.
Even though the ride is not a competitive race, Conor was still happy with finishing in pole position.
