Paul Turpin participated in the Nightrider London on Saturday, June 10 to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation (BHF).
It comes after he woke one morning last September with severe chest pains. Although tests didn’t suggest anything of obvious concern, Mr Turpin later found out he’d had a heart attack.
He said: “I’ve been training at the weekends and taking my children out on the bikes along country lanes in Kent, which has been really nice.
Now in its eighth year, Nightrider London sees participants pass by many of the capital’s famous landmarks on either a 50km or 100km route, starting from Lee Valley VeloPark.
