Vaughan completes charity ride
12:08pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Sport
Vaughan pedalled the enormous distance in 12 days, as he toured the one-day international venues for the England v Australia series.
His PruProtect Chance to Ride challenge came to an end this morning, as he finished a 70-mile night ride from Southampton to the Kia Oval.
Vaughan was joined on the last stage by fundraisers and celebrity supporters, including former tennis ace Tim Henman and ex-footballer Jamie Redknapp, who have raised thousands for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and the Cricket Foundation’s Chance to Shine initiative.
“It’s going to be a long, long time before I want to see a saddle again,” said Vaughan. “The Chance to Ride has been everything I expected it to be – tough, exhilarating, inspiring and great fun.
“We’re raising a lot of money for Laureus and Chance to Shine, two great causes and it will all be worth it for the kids who get to play sport or get other opportunities thanks to the funds we have raised.
“I’d also really like to thank the fundraisers and friends who joined me, including Andrew Strauss, Victoria Pendleton, Jamie Redknapp and Tim Henman.”
