A 64-year old from Harpenden will cycle nearly 1,000 miles in nine days for charity.

Andy Mills-Baker is part of the Alliott Group international team of lawyers and accountants raising money for the cancer specialist hospice, Rennie Grove Hospice Care.

The chief financial officerwill take part in the cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats between September 5 and September 13.

He said: "Rennie Grove is a wonderful local charity. My nephew is currently being treated for Lymphoma, so this gives me extra motivation to get over the line. 

"I have managed 100 miles in a day in training, but repeating this for nine days in succession is really going challenge me mentally and physically. Though I have been training since February, I have had the odd crash in training, and two broken wheels. The first few days are full of hills and will be very tough on the old legs."

At 64, Andy is one of the oldest riders in the event. But having climbed Mount Kilimanjaro four years ago he said he was confident he can meet the challenge head on.  

Andy’s efforts can be followed on Twitter: @amb49.
