Bob’s charity bike ride in support of cancer care

Marie Curie Cancer Care

Local  resident Bob Bloomer is currently on a mammoth sponsored cycle ride in aid of  Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Bob, an ex-professional footballer (Chesterfield, Bristol Rovers & Cheltenham) who now works for the Football League, trained for his ride at Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre and is supported by Giant Bradley Stoke, who have loaned him a road bike.

He is currently on Day 5 of his challenge and is finding it quite tough, especially as it’s a solo effort, but is spurred on by the continuing donations he is receiving through his website

The schedule of Bob’s charity ride:

  • Friday 6th May (Day 1) – Bristol (Rovers) to Portsmouth (training ground, Eastleigh)
  • Saturday (Day 2) – Portsmouth to Oxford
  • Sunday (Day 3) – Oxford to Swindon to Cheltenham
  • Monday (Day 4) – Cheltenham to Walsall to Shrewsbury
  • Tuesday (Day 5) – Shrewsbury to Swansea
  • Wednesday (Day 6) – Swansea to Cardiff (on to Bristol)
  • Thursday (Day 7) – Cardiff (Bristol) to Exeter
