Firefighters take on charity cycle challenge


Date: 25th July, 2016

Four firefighters from Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service are cycling 100 miles for charity at the end of this week.

Firefighter Mike Cleaver, Crew Manager Richard Lake and Firefighter Archie Webster, all from Devizes fire station, and Station Manager Tom Brolan, district commander for Amesbury, Ludgershall and Pewsey, will be joined by Mike’s brother-in-law Dan Scott  for the Prudential Ride London 100 on 31 July.

As the name suggests, the challenge covers 100 miles between the capital and Surrey, using the road race route used during the last Olympics.

The team is raising money for the Epilepsy Society, which has given Mike and his family a lot of support since daughter Poppy was diagnosed with the condition.

He said: “Dan, Archie and I were part of the ‘Magnificent Seven’ who completed the 24 hour cycle challenge around Wiltshire’s fire stations last year, and both Tom and Rich are also keen cyclists, so we thought this would be a fun way to raise some money for a charity that’s very close to my heart.”

As if this wasn’t challenge enough, Mike and Dan will then be tackling the Ride24 Newcastle to London event on 20-21 August for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

This is a 310 mile route that is completed in 24 hours, and is personal to Melksham-based Dan, as his brother has the disease.

Mike said: “As well as Dan’s brother being in a rapid decline from motor neurone, a friend of mine lost his dad to the disease last year. We’re both cyclists who like to tackle longer rides, so this seemed a great challenge and a great cause.”
