This July Ian will take on the 50-Mile Chester Challenge route, exploring scenic Cheshire lanes. Ian’s challenge will start and finish at a buzzing event village at Dale Barracks, Chester, before heading North towards Frodsham and through the beautiful Delamere Forest.

Ian’s challenge comes after he took part in the ride for the first time last year and promised himself he would participate again this year, but this time as a fundraiser too.

With seven years of cycling experience under his belt, Ian is ready and raring to go for the ride, saying of the challenge:

“I took on the Liverpool Chester ride last year and loved every minute of it. The atmosphere and camaraderie among the riders, organisers, marshals, and spectators was just fantastic.

“This year I chose to raise funds for North West Cancer Research as I wanted to support a charity that benefits the area local to me, where I grew up and where I live now alongside my family and friends. Like so many people my age, cancer has stuck its ugly head into our lives with far too much regularity, so I think it’s time I did my bit to make sure the charity’s crucial role in fighting cancer continues.”
