Shane Duff is taking on a challenge for Prostate Cancer UK this summer and is being backed by Cheltenham Cycles.
Local business Cheltenham Cycles are throwing their support behind Shane Duff ahead of his big challenge this summer.
Duff, a former Cheltenham Town defender, offered his services to cycle from London to Amsterdam on behalf of the Football Club and has currently raised £732.51 of a £1,200 target ahead of the event in June but his bike and some of his equipment has been kindly donated by Cheltenham Cycles.
"I didn't even have a bike when I agreed to do this!" Shane explained.
"Cheltenham Cycles stepped forward and donated the bike, shoes, helmet and all the gear so without them I probably wouldn't be doing it because I wasn't prepared to spend the money it would have cost me. This is the second time they have supported the club on a bike ride so it's fantastic to see that kind of support from a local business."
Ahead of his challenge Shane is preparing hard for what will be a tough trek but what has been the most difficult part of his training?
"I've recently doubled up with the padded shorts and it's still not working!" he laughed.
"I might have to strap a three seater sofa to the back of my shorts! If anyone's got advice on creams then that would be ideal because it really is uncomfortable!"
Please sponsor Shane as he raises money for Prostate Cancer UK. Even a small amount will go a long way so please follow the link below and donate today.
