Supporters and members of Bury Town are getting on their bikes to raise money for both the club and charity in June.

The four-day fundraiser will see the group complete the 224-mile route from Lancashire’s Bury FC to the Blues’ home at Ram Meadow.

The Bury2Bury cycle ride is aiming to raise around £50,000 to be shared between the club and the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity.

Over the four days the group will be calling in at other football clubs along the way, such as Stoke City, Leicester City and Peterborough United.

Bury Town’s CEO Michelle Banfield-Curran is among those taking part and said: “Club members wanted to raise money for the club, and Breakthrough Breast Cancer as it is a cancer that affects both men and women.

“The daily target of circa 50 miles is an achievable target for all with some training beforehand.

“And we will be holding some sessions with invited guest speakers who will give advice on fitness and nutrition, essential bike maintenance and further fundraising ideas for participants.

“It is a great chance for participants to raise money for a great cause and at the same time get fit.”
