"It was the hardest thing I have ever done. Thanks for all the support." - Tynan Scope on London to Amsterdam

9 June 2014

The City corporate sales manager completed the mammoth journey over the weekend and has thanked everyone for their support...

Coventry City corporate sales manager Tynan Scope completed his London to Amsterdam bike ride in aid of Prostate Cancer UK on Saturday.

The 150-mile journey ended at the home of Eredivise Champions Ajax, the Amsterdam Arena having started his journey from Leyton Orient's Matchroom Stadium.

Tynan and City fan Andy Burton were flying the Coventry City flag as 152 riders from across the Football League took part, including former City boss Micky Adams.

After completing the mammoth journey, Scope said it was the 'hardest thing he has ever done.'

Scope commented: "It was such a relief when I cycled into Amsterdam. It has been an incredible journey over the past six months with all the training I've done so to complete it was an fantastic experience.

"It was probably the hardest thing I have ever done. The first day was really difficult as a group of us covered 90 miles at quite a fast pace and there were plenty of hills.

"Cycling through Holland was a great experience and the team spirit amongst everyone from the other Football League clubs was fantastic. It made the experience much more enjoyable and also a big well done to City fan Andy Burton who completed it with me.  We rode together for most of the 150 miles which was great.

"I'd like to thank everyone for their support and donations as it really drove me on in the final stages and also Decathlon Coventry for donating the bike and equipment needed to complete the journey."

Scope has already raised £2,635 for Prostate Cancer UK but has set a target of £3,000! If you haven't donated already, you can donate here:
