Droitwich man goes to great lengths for prostate cancer charity
5:10pm Friday 21st September 2012 in News
A DROITWICH man has just returned after completing a 700 mile cycle ride through Switzerland, finishing with a gruelling 7,000 ft climb up the Swiss alps.
The ride in aid of Prostrate Cancer started as an idea to help support a charity rally organised by a work customer of Steve Kite.
Mr Kite said: “The customer had organised a James Bond themed car rally from Northampton to Interlaken in Switzerland finishing at the cable car station on the summit of Mount Schiltorn, where scenes from the Bond movie ‘On her Majesty’s Secret Service’ were shot.
“As well as entering a car, myself and some colleagues thought it would be a great idea to show support by cycling the Swiss leg of the journey, and in doing so make the ascent to the cable car station
“The ride took four days and was a fantastic experience, and one we will never forget.”
The rally raised more than £110,000 for the charity, and plans are already underway for next years European adventure.”
