JOHN O'GROATS TO LAND'S END CHARITY RIDE 2018

IN AID OF PROSTATE CANCER UK

 

CASTLE MOTORCYCLES, CASTLEFORD

 

PCUK supporting BLACK 

 

I am pleased to announce that CASTLE MOTORCYCLES of Castleford, Yorkshire, has agreed to support PROSTATE CANCER UK and that they are also sponsoring me in the organisation and launch of this, my third and 10 day epic journey across the UK.

CASTLE MOTORCYCLES are the most pre-eminent HONDA dealership in the North and I thank them for their commitment to the cause and their willingness to assist me in my efforts to further raise public's awareness of this debilitating condition.

For anything HONDA please visit www.castlemotorcycles.co.uk

I am meeting with a few local bikers and will be departing from Castle Motorcycles in Castleford on Sunday the 1st July and then calling at Squires, Sherburn-in- Elmet, for breakfast, before setting off on my first leg to Dunfermline.

Castle Motorcycles will open at 09.00 hrs on that day for coffee and photo-shoot.

We are hoping that some of you may wish to join me on part of this first leg and would ask you to register your interest, either with me or Castle Motorcycles directly.

Meet either at CASTLE MOTORCYCLES or SQUIRES.

As you may already know, recent statistics now show that more men are being diagnosed and dying of prostate cancer than women with breast cancer. This is shocking and we men must do something about this.

It's virtually Men United v/s Prostate Cancer. So Join Up. Get Involved.

I am currently engaged in conversations with potential sponsors and will let you know how I get on.

It would be great to get some help towards making this a bigger event and reap the rewards of an increase in the public's awareness of this illness.

This alternative route was suggested to me by Lenny Webster. It is will be an viable option if I manage to recruit a few bikers from the Highlands to join me on this particular leg of my journey. Thanks Lenny.

This is an alternative route to Dunfermline from Squires.

For those who may wish to accompany me on my first leg from Sherburn.

You can then more or less pick how far you wish to go and drop out.

Maybe it might also induce your friends to make a day of it to the seaside.

Remember I'm leaving Squires at 10.00 hrs

Cheers

Roger
