Stroke survivors get on their bikes to bring in cash

Have your say

A team of Hailsham stroke survivors cycled the equivalent distance of London to Brighton on indoor bikes at Hailsham Leisure Centre on June 13.

The riders took it in turns to cover the 56 miles as a team. The cycle ride was organised to raise awareness of stroke and raise funds for the Stroke Association.

The idea came from stroke survivor Nick Giles, 54, from Litlington. Before his stroke two years ago, Nick was a keen mountain biker. He hopes to return to outdoor cycling soon but, for now, is building up his strength, fitness and co-ordination at Hailsham Leisure Centre where he attends a weekly rehabilitation class with other stroke survivors and takes part in indoor cycling classes and gym workouts.
