Acorus Director to Cycle 1000 Miles

19th June, 2019 by Acorus in General

All in the name of charity, you say!

From the 30th June 2019 - 13th July 2019, one of our directors, Mike Bamforth, will be starting a gruelling 986 miles and 58,000 ft. of uphill bike riding. From one end of the country to the other, they will be burning calories from John O Groats to Lands End. 

Mike and his team of eight other men from Bradninch Castle Velo Club are all aged between 49-60years old and are amateur cyclists, so this will be no picnic for any of them. However, they are dedicated to raising money for their four chosen charities; Exeter Leukaemia fund, Hospiscare in Devon, Jays Aim and Womb Transplant UK.

Should you wish to make a donation for the causes listed then please follow the below link and if you happen to see them on your travels, give them a boost with a great big cheer:
