What an incredible ride!
Two years ago a group of eight cyclists from York covered an incredible 1012 miles from Lands End to John O’Groats in just 12 days & raised £23,000 for the charity ‘York Against Cancer’. Between the 2 & 15 June this year, five of the original crew (Steve Loynes, David Mooney, Mike Nicholas, Iain Robertson & Patrick Shepherd) along with three new members (Tim Risk, Rex Parry & Rory Robertson) are attempting to cycle from John O’Groats to Lands End. This time they are taking a different & slightly shorter route than before of just 1000 miles still hoping to raise as much as possible for their charity.
All of us in some way will have been touched by cancer; by offering support to these events, absent friends & loved ones will be remembered & ‘York Against Cancer’ will have enough funds to continue with their incredible work.
The Kerfoot Group is extremely proud to sponsor these eight cyclists on their mission next month & has these words of wisdom to all the participants “make sure that your bikes are well oiled, correct kit packed & bulk items kept to a minimum. Don’t forget when you have completed the event that The Kerfoot Group produce an incredible range of speciality oils. Start thinking about what speciality oil you would like rubbed into those aching muscles and give our speciality department a call!”
