SEVEN non-professional cyclists are to embark on a gruelling trek to a seaside town in the name of charity.
Adam Hall, from Hanbury, and six other friends, will be waved off by supporters at The Cock Inn, in Hanbury Hill, Hanbury, on September 6, on a 120-mile journey to Skegness.
The seven are raising money for When You Wish Upon a Star which grants wishes for seriously ill children.
Mr Hall said: “None of us are professional but we have been training in the last couple of months.
“I raised money last year for a girl from Burton who had lost limbs to meningitis but I have never raised money through cycling so this is something to get my teeth into.
“I decided to raise money for When You Wish Upon a Star because I have a child who is very lucky so it is nice to do something for children who have been through a lot.
“I just thought it would be a good idea and I was with my friend one night and he agreed
“We chose Skegness as we were told it is the flattest route which isn’t completely true but it is near the seaside so we can stop there.
“We are a bit scared but we have been doing like 35 milers but to go from 35 miles to 120 miles is a bit worrying but I will complete it even if I have to crawl.”
The 34-year-old added he would like to raise between £3,000 to £4,000 and any donations can be made to The Cock Inn.
