JUST DAYS UNTIL IRON DUO'S CYCLING CHALLENGE

8 June 2015

In a few days' time, two Scunthorpe United representatives join those from across the Football League spectrum in a charity cycling challenge.

Assistant Club Secretary Adam Grice and Education Officer Wayne Johnson are cycling 145 miles in 48 hours for Prostate Cancer UK.

They leave the Matchroom Stadium, home of League Two side Leyton Orient, early on Friday with Harwich the destination.

Upon reaching the Essex town, all the riders will board the overnight ferry to the Hook of Holland, where they will pick up the flat cycling tracks leading to the Dutch capital.

Speaking to Scunthorpe-United.co.uk, Adam said: “There is no underestimating that this will be a tough challenge.

“Hopefully all the training that we have been putting in over the last few months will be worth it in the end.”

Neither Adam or Wayne had been on a bike prior to accepting this challenge, but now they’re enjoying every minute of being on two wheels.

Wayne said: “It’s a great form of exercise and the nice weather we have had in recent months has made it even more enjoyable.

“I’m just hoping that the weather will stay nice while we are completing the challenge.”

Both of the Iron’s representatives have raised significant amounts for the charity so far – and they intend to raise even more for the Football League’s official charity partner,

“Between us we have raised over £2,000 which is a phenomenal effort for our first bit of charity work,” Adam said.

“I’m already £400 over my original target, which is a shock to me, so I would like to try and raise another couple of hundred which will take me to £2,000 outright.

“Wayne still has some plans to keep his fundraising target so I can see him smashing his target as well by the time we return from Holland.”
