In all, the team will be covering 2,000 miles.
A trio from Moshulu Honiton are gearing up for a cycle ride which will take nine days - and 1,000 miles - to finish.
Father and son Neal and Matt Fulls, and Chris Pope, will be attempting to cycle from John O’Groats, in Scotland, to Land’s End, in Cornwall, from Friday, June 5, to Saturday, June 13.
They will be supported during the challenge by their partners, who will be travelling with them in a support vehicle.
But it’s not just the trio who are cycling - back at the Moshulu Honiton, several staff members will also be travelling 1,000 miles on a static ‘spinning’ bikes.
Natalie Walters, of Moshulu, said: “The spinning bike was Neal’s idea - he thought it would be a good way to get the company behind the boys who are doing the ride.”
The trio will be stopping at various Moshulu stores during the trip to drum up support and donations.
The team have set themselves a fundraising target of £10,000, which will be split between Exeter-based cancer charity FORCE, and the Special Care Baby Unit, at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital.
The baby unit is close to the Fulls’ family’s hearts as Neal’s son and Matt’s brother, Lewis, was born ten weeks premature. Without the unit, Lewis would not have survived.
Matt added: “I am excited and nervous about the ride - excited to get started but even more so to get to the end.”
Anyone wishing to donate can do so through the team’s online fundraising page - just search Moshulu-JOGLE on www.virginmoneygiving.com
