Cycling pair set themselves a tough charity challenge

June 12, 2012 11:42 AM

MP Julian Huppert and Cambridge City Councillor Susannah Kerr (pictured) have set themselves a tough challenge - cycling 125 miles in a day to boost three local charities.

The pair have signed up for the Cambridge Big Bike Ride on July 8 when they will commemorate the year by cycling 201.2km.

Both enthusiastic cyclists, Julian and Susannah will ride through Cambridgeshire villages aiming to raise £1,000 to be split between the Arthur Rank Hospice, East Anglia's Children's Hospices and Press Relief - The News Community Fund.

"This will be a challenge," said Julian, "because it's the furthest either of us has cycled in a day. But we decided it was so worthwhile, riding through the beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside while raising money for local charities at the same time."

Susannah added: "These charities are doing some excellent work locally and if we can help by doing something that we enjoy at the same time it has to be good.

"We know it's going to be tough but we're putting in the training so hopefully we will both make it to the finishing line."

Julian and Susannah has set up a Just Giving page for sponsorship. It can be found at:
