A former pub doorman will be hoping to sink a celebratory pint after he saddles up for a 50-mile bike ride on Sunday.
For Cris Augood, achieving the feat will be all the more impressive given the serious back problems that limit his mobility. The married 46-year-old of Middlemarket Road is taking part in Pedal Revolution’s Tour de Broads on Sunday at Hoveton Hall.
Writing on his Just Giving page Mr Augood said: “I am doing this charity ride for Macmillan Cancer Support as I witnessed the caring work the staff do for people suffering from cancer as well as for the families going through it. I went with my father to every session of his chemotherapy and it was an eye-opening experience.
“This charity event came to my attention and I felt the need to show my support for such a worthy cause, and I hope you can all give a little or a lot to help me show support for this great charity.”
