A Fraserburgh man is getting ready to cycle 160 miles from Fort William to the Broch to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Research.

Robert Clark will be undertaking the solo cycling challenge on September 14 and 15 to raise as much as possible for the charity.

Robert chose Macmillan having seen how much support they gave members of his family. Robert has raised £1,100 for the charity over the past two months alone.

The fund-raiser, who is an accountant with Bond Offshore Helicopters, has been in training for the 160-mile trip for six months.

Robert told the Fraserburgh Herald that his employer has made a substantial donation towards his fund-raising.

During the two-day challenge, Robert will make an overnight stop at Aviemore.

Commenting, Robert said: “I’m kinda nervous but confident at the same time.

“Preparations have been going well - I’ve spent a lot of time in the gym and on the road.

“I’m looking forward to seeing a bit of the scenery and a good few beers afterwards!

“I’d like to say a special thank you to my friends, family and work colleagues for their kind donations so far.

“I’d also like to thank Watermill Coaches for supplying the support vehicle for the trip and also Bond Offshore Helicopters for their generous donation.”
