A TEAM of six cyclists from Wiltshire, have cycled over 900 miles for charity, raising over £3,000.

The team from the Seed to Glory gym in Stype, near Marlborough, rode across Spain from San Sebastian to Malaga in nine days which included crossing the Pyrenees, inspired by Nichola Cunningham, 46, from Swindon suffers with CRPS, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, which affects the limbs..

She said: “The guy at my husband’s gym wanted to test their endurance and ability by doing a cycle ride. But then my husband thought why don’t we do it for charity.”

Mrs Cunningham previously worked for the NHS at Bath RUH, when she needed surgery on a twisted ankle and developed CRPS. She was very active and had recently graduated from university after a career change.

She said: “A lot of people think that it only causes a little bit of pain but in fact it’s a constant pain with complications and comes with mental health struggles. It is a very nasty condition and I wouldn’t wish it upon my worst enemy because it’s so incredibly painful. It really is a life-changing condition.” The CRPS charity has supported her and her family with what she described as fantastic support.
