Andrew Auld (86-91) and Robert Auld (91-96) are cycling from England’s most Easterly point to Ireland’s most Westerly point. The route will take them from Lowestoft in Norfolk to Dunmore Head in County Kerry via Rutland, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Snowdonia, the Isle of Anglesey, Dublin and Tipperary. The route that the gents will cycle is over 610 miles, and they are aiming to cover an average of 120 miles a day for five straight days. In other words, it is a long way!
“We are doing it to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK because 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer. We both know people who have suffered from this disease, who are either no longer with us or are fighting on. We hope that by raising some money and by raising awareness, we are able to help others similarly affected.
Having done charity rides in the past I know that the inspiration of receiving donations can be the real motivator to get you through when the times are tough and those pedals just won’t go round.”
