St Albans fundraisers sprouting ahead for charity on trip to Brussels

FOUR cycling enthusiasts from St Albans will embark on an epic journey of 360 miles from Aylesbury to Brussels to raise money for charity this week.

Adrian Broekman, Ray Potter, Paul Hodgson and Neil Peters will be travelling 90 miles over four days, through the north of France and into the centre of Brussels as part of the 23-man Brussel Sprout Cycle team.

Collectively, the team are hoping to raise �30,000 for the Aylesbury-based charity, PACE, which helps children with physical disabilities, like cerebral palsy, gain confidence and independence through a range of activities and educational programmes. The ride was organised as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations.

The four intrepid cyclists, who are all in their 40s, say that they are familiar cycling buddies and are looking forward to embracing the challenge and enjoying the scenery, whilst raising money for a very valuable cause.
