THREE cyclists from the area will be taking on an overnight challenge on the streets of London.
Neighbours Andy Stout and Pete Burrows, of Lyndon Road, North Luffenham, are joining about 3,000 people and taking on the London Nightrider Cycle Challenge tomorrow night (Saturday) in aid of Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Wisbech Physically Handicapped and Able Bodied Club.
Andy has chosen to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Trust for the support its given his 14-month-old daughter Freya who suffers from the condition.
He said: “To know that I’ll be doing it for a great charity is what will keep me motivated in the early hours of the morning.”
Pete, 50, will be cycling for the Wisbech Phab Club because his mum Carol is chairman of the club.
He said: “It’s going to be a challenge but I’m really looking forward to and it’s definitely something worth doing.”
Meanwhile, Caroline Gumbrell, 40, of Ufford, is cycling with a friend from Essex for Parkinson’s UK because her father is a sufferer.
She said: “I think the sleep deprivation makes it that much harder. It will be a real challenge for me.”
