Two Huntingdonshire teenagers are gearing up for a 160-mile bike ride for a cause that's close to their hearts.

Max Jordison and his friend Liv are taking on the cycling challenge in aid of Parkinson's Disease Society of the United Kingdom as Max's dad, Neil, has the disease.

Together, they have so far raised £830 towards a £1,000 target.

17-year-old Max from Swavesey said: "Seeing the horrible events that have happened to my dad in the past few years, we would love to make a difference.

"Our main goal is to raise £1,000, if not more, so we can make a big difference within the future of the Parkinson’s community."

The bike ride takes place on March 16 and 17 around the cricket clubs of all teams in the Eaton Socon first team league.

Max added: "We will wake up early in the morning and will have breaks during our ride when is necessary in order to pull through and make the rest of the day count.

"This will be split over two days while we aim to ride 80 miles both day while starting at Wisbech and aim to finish at Eaton Socon cricket club where everyone is welcome to join and celebrate.

"The last few seasons, the club has really supported Neil and helped carry him through tough times.

"It has allowed Neil to take his mind off everything and allowed him to enjoy watching his son while also scoring games when needed."

The duo will visit the following places during their bike ride:

  • Start - Wisbech Cricket and Hockey Club
  • Ramsey Cricket Club
  • St Giles Cricket Club
  • Histon Cricket Club
  • The Leys school Cricket
  • Exning Cricket Club
