A CHARITY cycle venture scheduled for Troon this weekend is attracting great support from people across the community.

Colin and Mark Fidler, who run Bikepost on Dundonald Road are organising a stationary cycle from John O'Groats to Lands End - almost 900 miles inside the shop from Friday at midnight until early afternoon on Sunday.

They are aiming to raise vital funds for the charity #BUYMSH to help build a brand new Malcolm Sargent House at a proposed site in Ayr.

So far they have had good interest.

Colin said: "We have had around 30 people expressing interest so far. A few have asked for sponsor forms so I have printed some of them off. We wanted to come up with a charity to support and #BUYMSH is a good cause as it’s for sick kids and the money will be used locally. Hopefully people will wear fancy dress. We just ask people to do whatever distance they want. People can still sign up and it will be fine for passers by on the day to pop along and do some miles."

Two bikes will be used for the challenge and a raffle is being organised with the prize of a voucher for a bike from the shop.

People who want to help can drop into Bikepost or call Colin or Mark on 01292 314607.
