Two Geriatricians working in Cardiff and Vale UHB,  Drs Biju Mohamed and Govind Menon, are planning to cycle from London to Paris over 3 days to raise money for Cardiff & Vale Health Charity to support Cardiff and Vale Memory and Parkinson’s Services.

These two colleagues have been training incredibly hard, and their hope is to raise money to go towards research and supporting direct patient care, such as enhancing counselling, education and support when people receive life changing and difficult diagnoses.

Dr Mohamed’s children are also joining in the mammoth 242 mile cycle ride, which they plan to complete over 3 days from 10 – 12 August 2022.  Raihaan is 21 years old and a 4th year medic at Imperial in London and Raima is 11 years old and a student at Whitchurch High School who also cycles with Maindy Flyers cycling club. Raima has also chosen to support Llamau and young homeless people for her part in the challenge.

To top off this dream team, and to maximise fund raising efforts, Biju’s wife Niba,  and Govind’s wife Leena, who are both GP’s, are volunteering as their support crew and following behind the cycling team in cars.

We wish them all the very best of luck and safe travels, and if you would like to support them, please follow this link:
