Team Aon driver Tom Chilton will take part in an endurance charity bike ride next month.
From 14 to 16 September, Chilton will pedal for 480 kilometres between London and Amsterdam in support of Vision Charity and VICTA to raise money for helping blind and partially sighted children.
In 2011 the gruelling bike ride raised a brilliant £30,000 which enabled the Vision Charity to buy a minibus for a specialist school giving children access to local facilities.
As a keen mountain biker Chilton enjoys cycling as a hobby but also uses the endurance sport as one of his main methods to train and keep fit as he competes in the World Touring Car Championship. Making sure to get out on his bike at least a couple of times a week, Chilton enjoys the sport and will be in the perfect place to put his cycling skills to the test all in aid of a good cause.
Looking forward to his upcoming challenge Tom said, “I really can't wait to get on the bike and make our way to Amsterdam! I ride my bike a lot as part of my fitness training but I also enjoy riding for fun too. As a driver, my eyesight is very important to me so I'm extremely pleased to be supporting such great charities.”
