Our friends and amazing Mondelez International (Cadbury's Bournville) Community Champions Michael Huggins and Steve Davies have undertaken another amazing and challenging cycling race! 
 
Yesterday, Sunday 4th August, the cycling pair of super heroes completed the "Prudential Ride London" , which undertakes a difficult course around Greater London covering 100 miles! Thousands of cyclists had taken to the streets and Michael and Steven were amongst them, cycling for their chosen charities, including; Cerebral Palsy Midlands, Sandwell Advocacy, Primrose Hospice, Acorns Children's Hospital and Macmillan Cancer Research. 
 
The route sets off from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park before entering Surrey at Hampton Court. 
 
Riders then headed west so far as Ripley and East Clandon before returning to the capital via the rolling Surrey Hills for the finish on The Mall. Michael said he was proudly waving his Villa Flag at The Mall towards the end. Its another amazing achievement they have completed that we, at Cerebral Plasy Midland,s are extremely proud of. We don't know how they have the energy!

Cycling to help five great charitable causes, our friend and Mondelez Community Champion Michael Huggins will be cycling from Villa Park this Sunday 26th May finishing at Wemley stadium on Monday 27th May. 
Whether your an Aston Villa Football Club fan or not, you've got to admit this cycle is definetely challenging and he definately deserves some support?! Well we at Cerebral Palsy Midlands definately think so. 
 
Michael is cycling to raise awareness support and fundraise for his five top nominated charities this year; 
Acorns Children’s Hospice 
Sandwell Advocacy 
Primrose Hospice 
Macmillan Cancer Research 
 
Michael had made the commitment before their last played match that if Aston Villa FC won West Bromwich Albion he was going to set off for an ambitious cycle to Wembley Stadium for the Aston Villa play off final. AND they did win 1-0 securing their place in the finals and leaving Michael with a huge challenge ahead! 
 
The journey has been split in to two parts to ensure his arrival for the start of the match, Sunday, Michael will cycle to Milton Keynes (70 miles), stay over for the night and then cycle to Wembley Stadium (50 miles) on Bank Holiday Monday. 
 
To follow his progress Michael said; 
"The best way to follow my progress will be on Twitter @michaelah1874 but I must warn you in advance that on Sunday you will most likely see photos of me stopping in coffee shops along the route tucking into a carrot cake than me banging out the miles😂 
 
On Monday if I have not put on too much weight I will be pushing the speed a bit more as I hope to arrive on Wembley Way between 11am and 12pm."
