Disabled Walsall man completes 60 mile ride by cycling with his hands

A wheelchair-user from Walsall has cycled 60 miles through London using his hands in an effort to raise money for charity.

Andrew completed the 60 miles in under six hours

Andrew Moult took part in the Ford RideLondon event on Sunday, travelling from the Embankment through to Essex before reaching the finishing line on the London Bridge in under six hours.

The 64-year-old used a hand cycle to compete the challenge, using his arms to push against the pedals in order to propel him whilst steering with his legs.

He completed the 60 mile ride through the capital alongside fellow cyclist Condessa Parke, with the pair having raised around £1,000 for The Eve Appeal, a charity that supports women with gynaecological cancer.
