Rhyl, Prestatyn & Abergele Journal, 20th March 2020
This coming Saturday, more than 35 cyclists were meant to come together in Rhyl for a bike ride in memory of Alex Jones, a young cyclist who passed away a year ago due to an undiagnosed heart condition while on the course. The memorial ride was also intended to be a fundraiser which sought to raise £5,000 for Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY); a sum which would provide 100 young people in North Wales with free heart screenings. Unfortunately, the Memorial Ride had to be postponed due to the spread of Covid 19.
“We have postponed the Memorial Ride in view of the latest guidance on Covid-19,” said Alex’s mother, Audrey. “It is unfortunate that we need to do this but to go ahead in the circumstances would I feel have been irresponsible.”
She added: “Hopefully within the next few months we will be able to arrange another date – everything is still in place to get things going again.”
