A fantastic bunch of five cyclists are gearing up for an ‘Arc to Arch’ bike ride in aid of Douglas Macmillan Hospice.

One of the team Duncan Cowans has already raised £24,000 for the Hospice, in memory of his mother Sheila who passed away after receiving care in 2006.

He is joined on the ride by father and son Phil and Lee Boulton, Kalvin Amos and Tony Sanders, with Duncan’s wife and friend Alan Shenton providing support with the route, maps and driving a sponsored van to Paris.

Cheadle based Salon owner Duncan is keen to raise as much as possible to help Dougie Mac celebrate its Ruby year throughout 2013.

Duncan commented, “Training for the bike ride is going really well, and with just under a month to go we are on schedule training wise and really looking forward to the challenge.
“We will start the ride on Sunday 26th May from the Arc de Triumph, and hope to be at Marble Arch around midday on Tuesday.

Duncan has previously organised two sponsored bike rides for the hospice, in memory of his mother.

Liz Clarke, Head of Fundraising said, “We were delighted to hear training is going well for Duncan and his team.
“So many of our supporters are undertaking amazing fundraisers to help celebrate our 40th Anniversary.

“If you fancy a challenge of a different kind of challenge, you can sign up for our Ruby Bike Ride on Sunday 19th May with a choice of a 10 mile, 50 mile or 110 mile route. Log on to www.dougiemacevents.co.uk to register.”
