Les puts on the pedal power for a good cause
11:00am Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
A 30-YEAR-old Raleigh road bike will be Les Jordan’s mode of transport as he cycles from Land’s End to John o’Groats.
Les is cycling to raise money for Breathtakers OB Trust having shared a building with the charity through his work with Andover Careers Action in Andover.
The cycle begins on Saturday, 24 August and Les hopes to complete the ride in 12 days, cycling 75 miles a day.
Les said: “Lots of people say that my old Raleigh road bike belongs in a museum, but it runs like an absolute dream!
“Failure is absolutely not an option and it’s not going to happen, I’m feeling fitter than I’ve ever been.
“I’m hoping to raise as close to £10,000 as I can.”
