Marathon cyclist Mike Trevelyan arrives back at St Peter's Hospice.

Little Stoke man Mike Trevelyan has completed a sponsored cycle ride taking in all 92 Football and Premier League clubs in England and Wales in just 92 days – to raise money for St Peter’s Hospice.

Mike, 21, completed the trek from 2nd May to 1st August in memory of his dad Edward – known as Trev – a massive Bristol Rovers fan who was looked after at the hospice.

Mike said:

“The trek covered over 2,000 miles – which worked out at around one mile for every patient the hospice looked after last year.

“I wanted to do the challenge in memory of my dad and all the other people that St Peter’s Hospice has looked after. They do such a fantastic job and this is my way of saying thank you and keep up the amazing work!”

The challenging course across England and Wales began with an emotional send off from Bristol Rovers’ Memorial Ground before dropping in on neighbours Bristol City and then heading south to Yeovil and then across the UK. The trek ended on Wednesday 1st August at Cheltenham Town’s Whaddon Road ground.

Mike Trevelyan - charity cyclist from Bristol.

Little Stoke resident Mike Trevelyan is due to set off on a mammoth 2,000 mile charity cycle ride this week, to raise money for St Peter’s Hospice.

Mike, 21, plans to visit the grounds of  all 92 Football and Premier League clubs in England and Wales in just 92 days.

His epic journey, titled “Trev’s 92-Day Trek”, begins on Wednesday (2nd May) at the Memorial Stadium, Bristol, and, all being well, will end on 1st August at Cheltenham Town’s Whaddon Road ground.

Mike is making the trip in memory of his dad, Edward, – known as Trev – a massive Bristol Rovers fan who was looked after at the hospice.

The 1st August is significant for Mike as it is the anniversary of the day his dad passed away at the charity’s Brentry hospice, following a two month stay.

Mike said:

“I lost my father just over three years ago to cancer and have been trying to think of ways to raise money for the hospice.”

“All of the staff looking after my father did such a fantastic job looking after him, for which I am extremely grateful.”
