Disability campaigner completes cycling challenge from King's Lynn to Norwich


By Lynn News Reporter


A disability campaigner has completed a 75-mile cycling challenge which started in Lynn to promote the first ever Norfolk Disability Pride.

Martin Symons, who has a rare bone disorder, used his adapted four-wheeled bicycle called a Bomba to travel from Lynn to Norwich over three days with a support team earlier this month.

Martin also raised more than £300 for Norfolk Disability Pride, which will be held at the Forum in Norwich on Sunday.

Speaking ahead of his challenge, Martin, from Poringland, near Norwich, said: "It is important to get the message across that whenever you set your mind to something, you can do anything you want to achieve."
