You may remember Stockport's Steve Benson was due to cycle in the Manchester to Blackpool ride last month to raise money for The Christie hospital in Manchester. Sadly Steve's mother passed away and so he had to pull out of the event.
However, Steve is still determined to raise money for The Christie and has now set his sights on joining another of their fundraising events - the Manchester 100 - in her memory. This is a 100 kilometre (62 miles) bike ride through the beautiful Cheshire countryside and is the same distance as the Manchester to Blackpool ride he was contemplating originally.
The event takes place on Sunday, September 1st and I'm sure you'll join me in wishing him well at this sad time. You'll find Steve's JustGiving Page here.
