A Bridlington man will take on a stage of the Tour de France to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Peter Goodall will be pushing himself to the limit this July, when he takes on the challenge of completing stage 20 of the famous cycle race to raise funds for the charity.

Peter, 66, started cycling in 1963 has taken part in various events,riding thousands of miles since he began.

This year he will covers 82 miles in one day at Anecy.

“I won’t be riding with the elite professional riders though,” said Peter.

“They will be cycling at a later date. It’s a route that they will be following and it’s going to be tough, but it will be a great sense of achievement.

“Macmillan do such great work helping people when they are going through cancer, so I’m hoping to raise some money so that they can help more people.”

Sally Millington, fundraising manager for Macmillan said: “It seems that everyone knows of someone who has been diagnosed with cancer.

“As more people are being diagnosed with cancer and people are living longer, the demand for our services has never been greater. Every penny raised will go to help us reach more of the people who need us, and will keep Peter pedalling”
