Club vice Captain Alex Wakely is set to join in a charity Bike ride from Bedford to Paris, with friends from Bedford School, at the end of March.
The bike ride is set to raise money for Leukaemia research and Lymphoma Research.
Alex explained his reasoning for joining the bike ride, “My best friend Mark and I lost two of our mates to Leukaemia when we were at school, and since then we have done various events to raise money in their memory.
“In 2007, we completed a small cycle with such success that we now are going to go even bigger. We are cycling from Bedford school to Paris with a crew of 25 people consisting of pupils, ex pupils, staff and hopefully a celebrity or two!
The aim is to raise a huge amount of money for these charities very close to my heart. I am missing the first two legs of the trip as we are on pre-season tour in Barbados but I am joining the team in France on my return to finish the ride. I just see it as some extra fitness training before the season!
If anyone would like to sponsor us for our challenge I would be very grateful.”
