Gemma Black cycling photoBrake fundraiser Mike Stockton, who is senior asset control manager at Royal Mail and fleet safety specialist, says: "Road safety is a big part of my day to day life due to the nature of my role at work and from the first time I met the team at Brake I was impressed by their work and enthusiasm. When I thought of undertaking the London to Paris Bike Ride, Brake were my first choice to fundraise for. It was a great motivator during the long days in the saddle knowing that money I raised was going to such a great charity. The importance of the work they do was brought to life when one of the cyclists in our group was in a collision with a car on the first day and had to be airlifted to hospital."
