TWO men are gearing up for a charity bike ride on Monday.

David Piggott, right, and Andy Wilson, from Royston will be cycling 180 miles around Holland to raise money for Lupus UK.

The men will travel from Harwich to the Hook of Holland, where they will begin the six-day ride.

Mr Piggott of Shaftesbury Way said: "We cycle quite a lot anyway, about twice a week, so that's really our training."

The men will be raising money for Lupus UK, after Mr Wilson's partner suffered from the condition for 10 years before dying of pneumonia earlier this year.

The condition causes the body's defence mechanism to attack itself.
