Bikers complete IoW trip for charity

LONDON — A group of electronics specialists have successfully completed their cycle ride from Wiltshire to the Isle of Wight and hope to raise around £2,000 for Prostate Cancer Research.

The group who all work for electronic companies, includes Mark Johnson (who had cycled over from Chippenham), Matt Jenkins and Dave Wallis who set off from Calne at 7:30am last Friday morning.

The trio cycled to Upavon, 18 miles away, where they teamed up with the fourth team member Mark Hancock who had set off from his home in Marlborough.

Then it was south through Salisbury to a village called Everton, five miles west of Lymington to stay with Brian Way who is now retired but was most recently with Astro Technologies on the south coast.

The first day was around 84.5 miles and the next day Mark Sallows joined the group on the ferry to Yarmouth, 50 miles to St Catherine's Point and back to the mainland for the evening. They group returned to Calne on Sunday and the total round distance to St Catherine's Point was 206.5 miles.

It is still not too late to support the bikers efforts – email the group.
