The ride saw him travel the length of Scotland before making his way down most of England as well. He joined groups of other UK Youth supporters along the way and also visiting youth projects in Macclesfield, Blackpool and Northampton before arriving in London.
There he joined the reknowned L2P (London to Paris) cycling event that took him Dover, through Northern France before finishing in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. Among the 400 or so riders who took part in this final leg was a group of 30 who were also raising money UK Youth - a huge thanks to them all.
Nigel's twelve day challenge would have been tough for anyone never mind a man who'll celebrate his 60th birthday next year. Add to that a broken collar bone from a training ride crash four weeks ago and a broken toe picked up in the gym the day before setting off and you get a sense of his commitment to the UK Youth cause. Thankfully he didn't need to ride balancing on one foot with just one arm of the handlebars. You can look at photos of his amazing trip on Facebook.
