Eric the Postie arrives in Adelaide
Wednesday 14 October 2009
Eric Smart (pictured), the former postie who was on a marathon bicycle ride for The ME Association in the UK, has finally arrived in Adelaide. He began his epic journey in Aberdeen in May last year and rode into Adelaide on Saturday (10 October).
The ME Association has the latest:
Eric Smart reaches Adelaide - he's cycled 14,386 miles to get there
ME Association fundraiser Eric Smart reached Adelaide in south Australia yesterday (Saturday 10 October 2009) – at the end of a 14,386-mile cycle ride from his home town in Aberdeen.
He rode into Adelaide at 11:30am and immediately flagged up the news to his mum and dad back home. "He's quietly pleased with his achievement," mum Audrey said in a text received by us this morning.
The 44-year-old former Aberdeen postal worker, who recovered from ME some years ago, has raised well over £8,300 towards the ME Association and intends to keep his online fundraising page open while he cycles on through New Zealand, the USA and Ireland – until he completes his cycling circumnavigation of the world. His target is to raise £12,000 for the MEA.
