Kentish Express Ashford & District - - JUNCTION 10 -

AN IN­TREPID team will be set­ting off be­fore dawn on Satur­day on a bike ride to raise cash for Comic Re­lief. The nine will leave Park Farm in Kingsnorth shortly af­ter 5am for a spon­sored 70mile ride to Brighton, which they ex­pect will take more than seven hours. Lewis Lang, Craig Saun­ders, Phil Uden, Ja­son Dixon, John Small, Matthew Beaney, Tom Moore, Jo Bee and Dan Wil­son hope their jour­ney over some hilly ter­rain will raise £500 in ad­vance of Red Nose Day on Fri­day, March 16. Craig said: “It’s go­ing to be the long­est bike ride I have at­tempted but should be good fun with the lads. “We have been train­ing when we can and have done prac­tice rides to Folkestone, Can­ter­bury and Hast­ings.”
