A team of five men are cycling across England from coast to coast in a bid to raise vital funds for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
The team, who call themselves ‘The Boneshakers’, consists of North Thoresby man Chris Green, his colleagues at CPL Industries in Immingham, Mark Clark, Mick Turrell and Pete Read, and Stuart Robinson from Cemex, who lives in Immingham.
The team started off their journey in St Bees, a coastal village in Cumbria, on Monday (July 7) and will battle through 210 miles of off-road cycling.
They are following Tim Woodcock’s classic coast-to-coast route, which will see them cross three national parks along the way, and the journey is expected to take around five days.
After crossing through the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, the bike ride will come to an end at Robin Hood’s Bay in the North York Moors.
The five-piece team have been training together when not at work, and at the time of going to press they are currently in the middle of their cycle challenge.
Before setting off, Chris Green said: “We are raising money for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance charity, to support the fantastic service that they deliver by saving lives in our county.”
The team have raised £165 on their JustGiving fundraising page so far, and are hoping to raise as much as they possibly can for their fantastic cause.
