Learning Support Officer for the Joinery team at Tameside College, Alan Wilson is taking on challenge of one of the most challenging bike rides in the country, the 1,000 miles trip from John O' Groats to Lands End.
Alan joined Stockport Community Cycling Club in 2011 after an  illness which kept him off work for three months.
Alan said"  “As I was starting to feel better I decided that I wanted to become fitter so I started cycling with Stockport Community Cycling Club every Sunday."

Alan's grueling 1000 mile bike ride will take him around two weeks to complete. Alan will be raising money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society and Leukeamia Care. To donate please visit Alan’s JustGiving page: www.justgiving.com/alan
