Martin Rowe of Home Close is currently cycling across France with his friend Steve Theaker. Having left Portsmouth by ferry on July 11, they plan to leave St Malo the following day, cycling through the French countryside, up and over the Pyrenees and down into Bilbao in Spain, approximately 650 miles. On July 20 they catch a ferry back to Portsmouth. Martin is cycling to raise money for Garden House Hospice where his father spent the final days of his life. This is his third long distance cycle ride to raise funds for the Hospice, and he hopes to raise £1,000. Donations can be made to www.justgiving.com/martintow or sent directly to Garden House Hospice, Gillison Close, Letchworth, Herts SG6 1QU.
