The Straumann Charity Bike Ride 2022 is fundraising for Dentaid – a fantastic charity that supports vulnerable people with access to essential dental care.

Ahmed Mahammed will be taking part, and he says, “My experience of the last Straumann Charity Bike Ride was amazing. It was my first year of riding a bike and I wanted to challenge myself as well as raise money for a charity. I had never cycled more than 50km in one day and I signed myself to do 150km a day for 5 days. It was a challenge physically and mentally, but I was proud that I pushed through the pain/tiredness and flat tyres!

“The last few years have been difficult with the pandemic. I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could still do it, being older, and now more experienced as a cyclist. I also wanted to raise money for Dentaid and help ease the life of the less privileged in some way. 

“I have been preparing by eating lots of food and watching lots of cycling shows on my indoor bike. Fingers crossed this works and my knees hold up with all the hills in Spain! I have confidence in all the people I know to help me raise some great donations for the charity. 

“I think it is important to involve people around you to be part of your challenges and dreams. I hope that promoting the amazing charity work Dentaid carries out will inspire people to donate!”

Any donations are very welcome and most appreciated at Dentists in Lycra 2022 fundraising for Dentaid Ltd on JustGiving, if you are able to show your support!
