Mayor saddles up for tandem bike ride

The Mayor of Shrewsbury is set to mark his 65th birthday with a difference as he prepares to saddle up for a charity tandem bike ride. Councillor Miles Kenny and Mayor's Officer Robert Handley will ride from Shrewsbury to Lake Vyrnwy and back - 65 miles - to raise funds for the Mayor's chosen charities; Lingen Davies Cancer Fund and The Shrewsbury Ark on October 4.

Councillor Kenny said: "Riding a bike is one thing, but riding a tandem is a new challenge. Bob, the Mayor's Officer and I, are out training so we will be ready on October 4 to cycle the 65 miles to Lake Vyrnwy and back. Support is coming in including sponsorship from Sainsbury's and Stan's Cycles and I hope as many people as possible will sponsor us please."

Lingen Davies is a local charity committed to improving cancer services for the relief of cancer patients in Shropshire and Mid Wales, through the provision of specialist equipment and buildings. Over the years the charity has invested millions to improve the facilities for local cancer patients.

The Shrewsbury Ark is operated by the Shrewsbury Christian Association (SCCA) and provides a safe haven in the heart of the town, providing practical and emotional support for those in need or distress.
