Two brothers from Irchester have decided to cycle from England to Italy to raise money for charity.
Tom and Dan Brown, aka The Cycling Fratellis, are both keen cyclists and have decided to cycle from The 02 Arena in London to Brisighella in the heart of Italy, which is their mother’s family’s home town.
They will be riding about 100 miles a day and will not have any back-up. The ride has been timed so that their arrival in Brisighella coincides with the Giro Italia passing close by.
They plan to leave London on Friday, May 8, arriving in Brisighella 11 days later, and are raising money for Cancer Research and the British Heart Foundation. The pair hope to raise £3,000 in total.
