Sherrards’ 64-year old CFO will be putting his body on the line from 5-13 September when he cycles 969 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats over a period of just nine days. Andy Mills-Baker, who is Chief Financial Officer at St Albans based Sherrards Solicitors, is riding as part of the Alliott Group international team of lawyers and accountants, and is raising money for local charity and cancer specialist hospice, Rennie Grove Hospice Care.
“Rennie Grove is a wonderful local charity. My nephew is currently being treated for Lymphoma, so this gives me extra motivation to get over the line on 13th September. I have managed 100 miles in a day in training, but repeating this for 9 days in succession is really going challenge me mentally and physically. Though I have been training since February, I have had the odd crash in training, and two broken wheels. The first few days are full of hills and will be very tough on the old legs!”
At 64, Andy is one of the oldest riders in the event, but having climbed Mount Kilimanjaro four years ago, he’s confident he can meet the challenge head on.
The Deloitte Ride Across Britain cycle challenge starts this Friday and features some 700 riders from various countries. Andy’s efforts can be followed on his Twitter page (@amb49) or on this blog, and you can sponsor him on his Just Giving page.
