TIRELESS charity fund-raiser Bill Honeywell is set to embark on a 4,300-mile bike ride around the coastline of Britain to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The two-time cancer survivor will set off on his biggest challenge yet at 8 a.m. on Tuesday from the Castle Gates in Clitheroe. Although it’s an early start, Bill would be glad of any supporters willing to turn up and cheer him off as he embarks on the epic two-wheel challenge.

The 58-year-old Clitheroe estate agent has previously raised money for Christie Hospital and Rosemere Cancer Foundation by cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats, and by climbing all 214 of Wainwright’s Lake District fells in only 55 days.

This bike ride will see Bill cycle an average of 70 to 80 miles a day, before arriving back in Clitheroe in July, after visiting the most northerly, southerly, easterly and westerly points on the mainland.

Bill hopes to raise £20,000 for Cancer Research UK by cycling the entire coastline of Great Britain in just 10 weeks.
