Charity bike rider to don cycling gear
Bookmark and Share
A charity bike rider is set to don his cycling gear and complete a mammoth 870-mile cycle ride from Lands End to John O'Groats.

Richard Noakes, a housing group worker from Weymouth, is preparing for the gruelling task by cycling 80 miles every day from his home to his office in Yeovil, where he works as a health and safety manager, the Yeovil Express reports.

In completing the 870-mile ride, Mr Noakes hops to raise money for two charities close to his heart - the Dorset Kidney Fund and the British Heart Foundation.

He says: "I know it is going to be tough mentally and physically, especially cycling on my own but I am pleased with how my training is going, my route is planned and I am all geared up for the challenge."

Keen cyclists in Cambridge will no doubt be pleased to hear about a new charity initiative in the city, which will see the removal of abandoned bikes at Cambridge railway station clear room for those who are in need of a space to leave their cycle.

It is hoped there will eventually be somewhere in the region of 3,000 spaces, Cambridge News reported.
