|Ealing's Nightriding Reverend gets Lost|
But finds his way again and charity cycle ride is big success
An Ealing vicar who took part in a 100-kilometre (65-mile) all-night cycle ride around London has admitted he got a little lost on the route!
Reverend Peter Mackenzie of St John’s Church, West Ealing, was one of an intrepid team of cyclists who took part in the ride to support Uganda Development Services (UDS), based at the Lido Centre in Mattock Lane.
After weeks of wind and rain, fortunately the skies cleared for the ride on Saturday night into Sunday morning, with UDS’ cyclists among some 3,000 charity riders including Princess Eugenie and TV presenter Ben Fogle.
Asked what were the highlights, he said: “Tower Bridge beautifully illuminated, breath-taking views of London from Greenwich at night, Alexandra Palace at dawn and Crystal Palace and from the bridges shortly after sunrise.”
He also confessed: “A large group of us got lost at one point somewhere around Highbury but we soon found our way back onto the route.”
Reverend Mackenzie raised raised over £600 for Uganda Development Services. It is still not too late to donate via his justgiving page http://www.justgiving.com/Peter-Mackenzie0
