Kingston Wheelers Cycling Club has raised more than £13,000 for their local NHS hospital after climbing 200,000 metres in an elevation challenge.

61 members of the London cycling club took part, and originally planned to scale the 43,316 metres of the Seven Summits but by the end of the weekend had managed to climb nearly five times their original target.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
