A family from Holt taking on a gruelling 316-mile cycle ride across Britain will start the first part of their challenge next week to raise money for suffers of Parkinson’s disease.
Made up of family and friends a team of cyclists from Byfords will be cycling from Holyhead to Sheringham over four days in July to raise money for Parkinson’s UK.
But next week will see them hosting another event inviting people to cycle the same distance on three static cycles outside the restaurant on June 5 from 10am.
It comes after 55-year-old chef Paul Abendroth who, since being diagnosed with the condition in 2009, has embarked on a fundraising mission to help other sufferers.
Joining the team will be Mr Abendroth’s children Rachel, 25, and Luke 23, who have already helped raise £10,000 for the charity helping.
The group will also be asking people to sign-up to cycle parts of the last leg of the journey on July 12 covering the Norfolk coastline.
Since 2004, Mr Adendroth has run the pasty and pastry side of Byfords and his wife Pat, 50, is the delicatessen manager.
