Tommy Godwin | Long Distance Legend

Happy Birthday Tommy Godwin!

On his birthday in 1939, Tommy rode a massive 248 miles.

It’s not known whether he had time for a birthday party (or cake?) after yet another punishing day in the saddle…

In the 75th anniversary of his record-breaking feat, let’s hope that we can raise a toast to Tommy after tonights gala dinner taking place at the King’s Hall, Stoke.

We hope that the City of Stoke-on-Trent honours Tommy tonight by entering him in to Stoke’s Sporting Hall of Fame.

Best wishes and good luck to Tommy’s family, friends and admirers.
