Patrick Sherriff will be cycling in the Hong Kong 50 km Cyclothon on 8 October 2017. More than 5,000 cyclists from around the world are expected to test their mettle later this year at the city’s third annual Cyclothon, which will feature for the first time an internationally recognised 100km circuit that will twist its way around south Kowloon.

Patrick says "Rather than doing it for just personal gain, I am going to do it to raise funds for a charity I have supported for 28 years, World Land Trust (WLT). Their mission is to protect the worlds most biologically important and threatened habitats acre by acre. For instance, most recently they raised £300,000 to save the habitat for the Orang-utan in Kinabatangan, Borneo. I will be specifically raising money for their Action Fund which allows WLT to direct money where it is most urgently needed.

"Whilst I am no Chris Froome or Bradley Wiggins and the event is no Tour de France, I aim not only to complete the 50 km but to do it in a personal best time of less than 2 1/2 hours. So there will be pain, and I'm hoping, lots of gain!"
