Kyle Howarth will cycle nearly half the length of Britain in one day to raise funds for the SRBF
Leicester and Sheffield rider Kyle Howarth is undertaking a 156-mile charity bike ride to help raise vital funds for the Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund.
Howarth, 26, of Ashton-Under-Lyne will begin his ride from the Swindon Robin's Abbey Stadium in Blunsdon and complete it at Manchester's National Speedway Stadium, home of the Belle Vue Aces.
He said: “As you know it's been a crazy year for everyone, including British Speedway, with very little action here in the UK this year.
"The Speedway Riders Benevolent Fund has been helping riders over the years and their support when we're injured is invaluable.
"For a while now I've been wanting to give something back to the Ben Fund and have been thinking about how I could do this.
"Me and my friend Guy Clarkson have decided to do a sponsored cycle ride from the Abbey Stadium in Swindon to the National Speedway Stadium in Manchester.
"We hope to cover the full 156 miles in one day. This is a mammoth challenge for me and guy but one we feel is definitely achievable and absolutely worthwhile for such a great cause.”
Howarth's charity cycle ride will take place on December 5 and anyone who wishes to donate towards his fundraiser can do so here: https://bit.ly/3jwMt0D.
