A determined family of Yorkshire cyclists conquered rolling hills, slipped chains and a puncture to complete a gruelling 75 mile bike marathon.
The Crazy Wheelers team; comprising Gary Stephenson, son Harry (16), brother-in-law Allan Davidson and nephew Lex (13) cycled from London to Brighton to encourage sponsorship and raise awareness for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.
Gary lost his father-in-law, Pat Sullivan to pancreatic cancer last year within weeks of a surprise diagnosis and with survival rates for the disease especially low, at just 3%, the need to fund ongoing research is vital.
The Wheelers journey is even more incredible as their youngest member, Lex Stephenson is already familiar with the devastating effects of cancer having battled leukaemia since the age of 4. Lex, who is now in remission, continues to receive considerable support from local and national childhood cancer charities and wanted to extend his fundraising to help other organisations.
At the time of writing the team have raised over £1,700 of their £2,000 target and are still accepting donations now their challenge is complete. It is easy and safe to donate online via the following link…
