Wiggins Pedal Power for Diabetes UK

Mark Wiggins, a project manager from Bicester who shares the surname of a riding legend, is doing his own Tour de France when he rides from London to Paris in May - all for charity.

A group of 5 friends will be riding alongside Mark to honour their friend Stuart Patrick who they lost to GraftvsHost disease earlier this year following a battle against leukemia.

During his remission stages from leukemia, Stuart wanted to cycle with Mark to Paris to raise money for charities close to their hearts: Diabetes UK, Cureleukaemia and Bloodwise. Sadly, it wasn’t to be.
