In just over a week, two members of staff from Scunthorpe United embark on their maiden charity expedition.Assistant Club Secretary Adam Grice and Wayne Johnson from the Scunthorpe United Sports and Education Trust will join up with over 200 members from the other 71 Football League clubs as they cycle from London to Amsterdam.
The two day challenge sees all participants leave Leyton Orient’s Matchroom Stadium early on Friday 12th June with the destination of Harwich – some 83 miles away.
Once the riders have left the capital, they will head up through the countryside stopping off at Colchester United’s Weston Homes Community Stadium on route.
It is here where over 260 riders from the Football League’s representatives, talkSPORT and former professionals will stop to refuel.
Speaking to Scunthorpe-United.co.uk, Adam said: “There is no doubt that this will definitely be a challenge, however, it is one we are both up for.
“This is a massive achievement for both of us as it is our first charity challenge. We are also delighted with the generosity of everyone who has donated as we have currently raised in excess of £2,000 between us.
“That doesn’t mean the fundraising is stopping there, we still want to raise even more money for the charity.”
Once the peloton have reached Harwich the riders will take the overnight ferry to the Hook of Holland before cycling the remaining 62 miles up to the Dutch capital, ending their challenge at Ajax’s Amsterdam ArenA.
