The ride is due to begin in John O’Groats this Friday, August 17th, and due to conclude 926 miles later at Land’s End on Sunday, August 26th.
Taking time out to check the five-day weather forecast, Tim Walter, Roland’s managing director, commented (while anxiously eyeing the skies): “Well, we’re nearly ready to set off. The training is done, the bikes are prepped, our kit and the energy drinks have arrived and we’re hoping to carry on in the Olympic spirit of the past few weeks, especially with the amazing performance of Bradley Wiggins still clear in our minds: he’s definitely made an impact on all three of us.
"We’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity and support shown by people to date, and we’re around two thirds towards reaching our target. Distance aside, we’ve still got a long way to go though so please, if you’re yet to donate, visit the site and help the cause. ”
The riders will be setting off for John O’Groats, conducting last minute preparations and prayers before embarking on the 926-mile bike ride on Friday. The Three Men will also be joined on various stages by riders from Bonners, Dawsons, Digital Village, Gear4Music, PMT and Paul McManus, the MIA’s chief executive.
