A Beckenham couple is taking part in a 100-mile cycle to support the National Autistic Society.

Greg and Inge Finn, 50 and 47, say the charity helped their son when he was younger, and this was their opportunity to give back.

Prudential RideLondon is a legacy of the 2012 London Olympics and cyclists take in all the London sites before riding to Surrey and back.

"My wife and I did it in 2015 and were hugely impressed," Greg told News Shopper. "People stand outside clapping and cheering.

"It’s an amazing thing to ride through London with the road closed and having all that support."

Greg, founder of Finn Dental Specialists in Beckenham, spoke more about why he wanted to help the National Autistic Society.

This Is Local London:

"Our son is on the autistic spectrum," he began. "We know how difficult it is for parents and for autistic children themselves.

"We know how much good work these charities do and how they help. We benefited enormously from their expertise and we continue to support it."

The couple’s son, now 26, is now doing "extremely well" and is in a strong position to communicate with the world.

Greg and Inge are fitting in training whenever possible and recently rode to Brighton.

"We like to do everything together if we can," Greg said. "We have a solidarity and when one of us decides to do something the other automatically agrees."

Greg is this year celebrating the 25th anniversary of when he first opened his dental surgery on Kelsey Lane.
