A TYLDESLEY singer is half way through a mammoth bike ride. The Voice UK finalist, David Julien has reached France in his bid to ride from Leigh to Barcelona on just a push bike with friend, Mark McKeever.
They set off on August 18 for the journey that should take 16 days to complete.
David said: “These last few days have been tough. We completed a 120 mile trip from Amsterdam to Antwerp in one day. We got to see lots of the beautiful countryside in Holland.
“It really is full of cycle routes. It's unbelievable and a dream to ride on. Belgium and France not so much. It's not as flat as Holland and is taking its toll, as is the saddle sore at the moment.”
Despite the ups and downs, they are still optimistic that they can complete the challenge and raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
David said: “I'm sure our bodies will adapt and they will be able to cope with the daily beatings of the road soon enough. We've both fallen off a few times but luckily this has just been funny and nothing serious.”
