Former RCSEd Council Member Chris Oliver has completed a cycle ride across America to raise money for international charity WaterAid. Riding alongside his daughter Catherine, Chris set off from Los Angeles on 11 May and finished the 3,415-mile journey in Boston on 28 June.
Chris said: “Crossing through the Mojave Desert was the most challenging part. The temperatures reached 119 degrees plus (48oC); it was like riding in an oven. It made us realise just how important water is in the desert.”
