550 miles by bike for retired Lavington GP
9:00am Sunday 13th October 2013 in Latest News
Retired GP Dr Jonathan Miller has completed his challenging 550-mile cycle ride to Mount Snowdon and back and hopes to have raised more than £3,000 towards a new CT scanner at Salisbury District Hospital.
Dr Miller, formerly of the Lavington Surgery in Market Lavington, underwent surgery for cancer at the hospital four years ago.
He set out from Salisbury on Wednesday, September 25, and returned last Friday, a day earlier than expected.
For the ascent of Snowdon, Dr Miller was accompanied by his sons Edward and Joe, who are both in their 30s.
Dr Miller said: “I pushed the bike up Snowdon. I couldn’t ride it as the path is too rough. It is 48 years since I last went up Snowdon and it was less of an ordeal than I was expecting.
“On the way up Snowdon I met another patient of Salisbury hospital who had suffered a heart attack and made a full recovery. He was very willing to sponsor me.”
