 Help Jeremy and his dad raise money for Dentaid

Q: Why did you decide to take on this cycling challenge?

A: Tempdent has nominated Dentaid as their charity of the year, to celebrate both organisations 20 year anniversary’s.  Dentaid, asked if there would be anyone interested in taking part in Ride London, and it seemed like a great challenge.  My Father and I had been considering a long ride for a while, so it was the perfect opportunity.

Q: Have you completed any charity challenge like this before?

A: I have never done anything like this before for charity.  My Father has ridden several long rides for various charities over the years.

Q: How long have you been cycling for?

A: I have been cycling since I can remember.  One of my earliest memories is receiving a brand-new bike for Christmas, so almost 30 years now.

Q: Why do you like cycling?

A: Cycling for me today, is a very important part of my life, especially as I am not a car owner.  Living and working in London, means that I rely on my bike to get me to and from work, and gets me out of the tube, especially in this hot weather.  It is also a great way to socialise with friends and family, as we will go on long rides together, around London and the home counties.

Q: How did you manage to get your dad to do this challenge with you?

A: My Father taught me to ride a bike, when I was about 5.  He has always been an avid cyclist, and it is something that he has passed down to me.  We were watching a football match back in February, and I asked him if he would be interested in the ride and to raise money for Dentaid.  He was really keen on the idea, and very impressed with Dentaid and its achievements.  I think the fact that our team won 2-1, and the pint of beer also helped to seal the deal!  

Q: What scares you the most about this challenge?

A: Everything

Q: What preparation have you been doing?

A: I have never cycled 100 miles before.  Since starting training for the ride, I have done longer and longer distances.  The last big ride I did the other weekend, was 70 miles, and that was tough.  I know we will get round, I just hope we are not the last ones over the line.

Q: How can people support you?

A: Dentaid is a fantastic charity.  My father and I are trying to raise £500, to go towards a mobile dental unit that will be shipped out to Africa, to help those without dental care, and whose lives will be drastically improved.  If anyone would like to donate some money click here and we will be cycling on the 30th July.

  • Tempdent provided me with the most amazing help and support during my training. My assessor, Lynn really helped me through my course, she was very easy to approach. She had some brilliant tips and hits when it came to revising for my exams and I managed to qualify in just over a year which I do not think I could have done without such a great tutor. When I was really stuck on a project Lynn would make an arrangement for a support call where she broke down the project in a way I could understand what I had to do
