A multiple mountain bike world champion will spend tomorrow (Saturday) riding 200+ miles in memory of her dad, who was cared for at St Michael’s.

Tracy Moseley is gearing up for the Chase The Sun challenge, which sees cyclists set off at sunrise from the Isle of Sheppey, before making their way across country, finishing at Weston-Super-Mare as the sun sets.

Tracy is hoping to raise £9,000 for St Michael’s in memory of dad Michael, who died in January aged 79.

“St Michael’s was just the best place for dad at that time,” said Tracy.

“Having witnessed the wonderful care provided at the Hospice, it made me realise why so many people want to support them.”

Just last year, Tracy and Michael appeared in a Chasing The Sun documentary film, which has been shown in cinemas across the country.

“Dad had only been diagnosed a few weeks earlier, but he still wanted to do the filming. I had never heard of this race beforehand. Cycling has been my life, but never over this sort of distance. But I’m looking forward to it, and hopefully we can raise as much money for St Michael’s Hospice as possible.”

Chase The Sun is the UK’s longest one-day endurance cycle event, with three simultaneous coast-to-coast sunrise-to-sunset rides.
