King’s Lynn Cycling Club’s social group leader and organiser Kersten Muller goes off on his own personal journey to help raise money for Meningitis Now, his chosen charity this year.
He will be riding the iconic Prudential Ride London 100 bike sportive in July, plus a personal challenge tomorrow by cycling from Lynn to Dresden in Germany.
He commented: “I will be cycling from King’s Lynn to Dresden on May 21. This will be my biggest test of endurance to date. I don’t know how long it will take but anticipate somewhere between five to seven days.
“I will do this ride unsupported. Yes, that means luggage in panniers, find food stops and accommodation along the way!”

Sunday saw many KLCC riders participate in the Wisbech Wheelers Open 25-mile time trial near Wisbech.
Lynn riders’ times: David Procter 55.22, Steven Neill 56.13, James Senter 58.13, Simon Hardy 59.56, Marcus Hopkins 1.05.29, Neil Holland 1.09.00, Kay Burgess 1.09.44.
Hardy said: “It was the perfect day. No wind. Cool to start but it warmed up quickly. I was really pleased with my effort and performance and was overjoyed to have beaten the hour for the first time this year.”
Burgess added: “There was no real help or hindrance today. Slightly cold at 8am but it is a fairly sporting course so it was a good ride.”
Senter said: “This is my second 25-mile solo and the first this year on a TT bike. I struggled for some reason and came home in an average speed of 25.8.
“David Procter had his chain came off near the end and had to put it back on again – he must have lost 30secs to a minute.”
