Hitchin tandem bikers rise almost £1,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care in ‘Daft-fodil Bike Challenge’
Two pals completed a gruelling 100-mile tandem bike challenge around the roads of Herts and Beds to raise almost £1,000 for charity.
Hitchin man Gavin Fowler and his friend Chris Pollett took 11 hours to cycle a route shaped like a daffodil – evoking the logo of their chosen cause, Marie Curie Cancer Care – on Friday, February 19, in what they dubbed their ‘Daft-fodil Bike Challenge’.
Wearing matching yellow shirts and tights, the two 33-year-olds traced the outline of all six petals and joined them up with a final loop around Hitchin at the end.
“We have been away on many mountain biking weekends across the UK, but this is the first time we have done a fundraising challenge,” said Gavin.
“We are very close to our target of £1,000, which is great news for a great cause.”
