Cyclists plan 1,000-mile charity ride
Two weeks, two bikes, and 1,000 miles - that is the challenge facing two north Norfolk volunteers hoping to use pedal power to raise thousands of pounds for charity.
Two weeks, two bikes, and 1,000 miles - that is the challenge facing two north Norfolk volunteers hoping to raise thousands of pounds for good causes.
Kevin Theodore and Adam Reith give up their spare time as members of Sheringham's lifeboat crew and first responders team. And in September they hope to raise money for both causes by cycling 1,005 miles from John O'Groats to Land's End. On the way they will stop at lifeboat stations and first responder bases to raise awareness of what they do.
Father-of-three Mr Theodore, 35, began volunteering for the RNLI two years ago, and Mr Reith, 18, works in the Lobster pub. They want to raise �5,000 for each cause.
