Oxford supporting Football League Amsterdam Cycle Challenge
Dand Bond this morning set off on the London to Amsterdam Challenge.
United video analyst Dan pedalled off this mornining to cycle the 155 miles from London to Amsterdam in aid of the League’s partner charity Prostate Cancer UK.
Kicking off at Wembley Stadium the 40 cyclists involved will cycle to Harwich and take the overnight ferry, before finishing their journey the following evening at Amsterdam’s Dam Square and returning to the UK by Eurostar on Sunday.
Dan told oufc.co.uk: “I’m really excited to be involved in such a fantastic event and to support the 250,000 men living with prostate cancer in the UK. It’s going to be a tough challenge for all of us but we’re well prepared for it.
“The club has already done a lot to support Prostate Cancer UK this season, raising more than £1,000 growing moustaches back in November, so it’s great that we can do our bit and support them with this bike ride.
“1 in 8 men will be affected by prostate cancer in their lifetimes and if we can help even a tiny bit to raise money and awareness to reduce that number in the future – and have fun doing it – then that makes all the training and aching muscles worthwhile!”
Please help support this great cause. Dan has already raised funds from friends, colleagues and family but we need help with the online contributions at the Just Giving Page set up for this cause. Every pound will help so please spare thirty seconds to log on here to donate via JustGiving.
(Spike Elliott, originally scheduled to make the bike ride with Dan was ruled out at the last minute on medical advice.)
