SIX super-fit cyclists are set to ride the length of the UK to raise cash for various worthy causes and charities.
Bolsover and District Cycling Club members Adam Galley, Andy Brickles, Josh Slater, David Mellor, Vernon Richardson and Alan Maddox will be riding 1,000 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
Adam Galley said: “We’ve been training really hard and have got some great support and we’re all paying for our own accommodation and food so that as much money as possible will be going to a variety of causes.”
The riders are raising sponsor money for their own individually chosen charities including Cancer Research UK, Ashgate Hospice, Stubbin Wood Special School, near Shirebrook, and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
Supporters so far include Martin Waste recycling company, JE James Cycles and Polaris Apparel but the cyclists are appealing for more sponsors to get in touch and donate money to help the selected charities.
A fundraising race night, will also be held on August 12, at The Blue Bell pub, Bolsover, to help cover the challenge’s expenses and to boost the team’s charity collection.
