Seven men on three bikes

Have your say

SEVEN Rotarians from Hitchin visited Spalding on Tuesday on their 216 mile charity ride to Scarborough.

The riders – with their trandem, a three-man bike, and two tandems – were greeted with a £100 cheque from Spalding Rotary president Barry Elliott.

Mr Elliott said: “Their target for the whole event is £10,000. This is shared between the National Autistic Society, prostate cancer and a children’s home, Keetch House.”

He said the riders described Spalding as “a lovely, friendly place”.

There was a minor mishap on their journey here as the wheel of the trandem buckled in an accident at Whittlesey.

Mr Elliott said: “A trip to Halfords in Peterborough saw the only wheel of its type fitted to the specially built, three-man cycle.”
