A ROYSTON man will be getting on his bike this weekend to raise funds for the East Anglian Childrens Hospice.
Scott Dwyer is one of three riders cycling from John O'Groats to Lands End as part of Jogle2008. He is raising money for the hospice, which helps children and their families deal with life-threatening illnesses.
The team set off on Saturday, and are aiming to complete the trip within 12 days.
He said: "John O' Groats to Lands End in twelve days on road bikes will be tough - but as a team we will succeed."
