Students from Old Catton and Mulbarton pedalling the length of Britain for children
Students are showing they are far from the stereotype of being 'lazy' by getting on their bike – all the way from John O'Groats to Land's End.
Old school friends Tim Pulford-Cutting, 24, from Old Catton, and Jimmy Harris, 25, from Mulbarton, have decided to use their love of cycling to raise money for the NSPCC. The ride, which tours from the top of the country to the bottom, totals 1,000 miles – usually taking teams 10 days to complete.
Former Hethersett High School student Mr Pulford-Cutting, said he was a keen cyclist and wanted to combine this with doing good.
The pair have completed big rides before, from the Norfolk coast to the Australian outback.
But Mr Harris, a recent business graduate from Edinburgh University, said he wanted to do something outside of his comfort zone. He said: 'We want to complete the ride for a personal challenge. We're not staying in posh hotels but will camp all the way down – so we can really feel like we are challenging ourselves.'
