Fourteen men to take on Black Country bike ride for charity

By Thomas Parkes | Wolverhampton | News | Published:

Fourteen men from the Black Country are set to visit local football clubs on a bike ride to raise money for charity.

Scott Russell, Adrian Doughty, Simon Walker, Adam Bradley and Richard Ward will all take part in a charity bike ride.

Scott Russell, Adrian Doughty, Simon Walker, Adam Bradley and Richard Ward, are all part of a team who will take on the challenge on February 16.

The riders have chosen the Prostate Cancer charity after a friend's father-in-law, Tony Daniels, died from the illness.

Adrian, aged 45, said: "We're all from Wolverhampton or nearby.

"The ride is for a prostate charity in memory of my mate's father-in-law who passed away in March.

"I know a few people who've had the all clear and it's really to raise awareness of the condition."

The team will start at Wolves' Molineux ground and travel across the West Midlands – all in one day.

Mr Doughty added: "We've got 14 lads jumping on their bikes.

"It's about 45 to 46 miles. We're going from the Wolves to Albion, to Villa Park, to the Blues and Walsall and then back to the Molineux.

"A lot of it is canal paths because it's safer.

"It will be a good to get the lads together. You don't get to catch up often – only at matches.

"I'm quite confident I'll be able to do it. I've already started my fitness training back up."
