John, who has been cycling for five years, has been training especially for the challenge for the last month.
It’s the second time he will have taken part in the event. He completed the race last year and raised over £1,000.
“It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done…. We had lots of hills for the first 60 miles. On the last 40 miles that I thought was going to be easy we suddenly got a head wind. So it was difficult for the full 100 miles!” – John Croasdale, cyclist
Both riders hope to raise lots of money for the charity.
