Mike Smithson, Managing Director of The Property Jungle, the Swindon based web designer for Estate Agents, is heading off in a new direction this autumn in aid of Macmillan Cancer Relief.
In October Mike will fly to South Africa to ride 400 miles in 8 days across dirt tracks, dense jungle, open plains and mountains. Although sleeping rough it will be amongst some spectacular scenery.
In preparation for the real thing, Mike recently rode his bike in his local Asda Walmart for an amazing 115 miles on one of the hottest days of the year on 17 July. Surrounded by his friends, family and some bemused customers, Mike managed to increase his total sponsorship to over ?3,000.
“I’ve been training for this since January and can’t wait to get out there” said Mike. ” Macmillan who provide such a fantastic service. Friends, clients, colleagues and family have all been so generous, I now need to complete the challenge!”
