Four brothers from Salisbury began their 900-mile cycling journey from Lands End to John O’Groats just before Easter weekend, with plans to travel an average of 100 miles a day by pedal power, raising money for Breast Cancer Now along the way.

Brothers Josh, 31, Luke, 29, Zach, 26 and Seb Green, 23, will also be joined by their father, Mike, 57, a member of Salisbury Rugby Club’s Legendary Fat Blokes on Bikes.

The family team were inspired to embark on the nine-day journey after the matriarch of the family, Viv, 62, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016. Viv will be joining her sons and husband as their support driver along the journey.

Seb said: “This was actually Dad’s idea, probably three or four years ago now. He managed to convince Josh and they both managed to convince the other three of us to do it as well.

“We’ve all played for Salisbury Rugby Club since the age of six. We’re all very sporty.”

The team has already raised more than £14k via their JustGiving page.

With the exception of Josh, who cycled the NC500 along the Scottish coast in the summer of 2020, the cycling trip is by far the longest any of the brothers have undertaken.

Seb said: “I really don’t know what to expect when we go to Scotland. It’s very uncharted territory for me. Josh has done a ride called the NC 500, so he knows what to expect, whereas for the rest of us it’s probably a little bit daunting, I think, because we’ll more than likely face some pretty treacherous conditions there. Where there’s a will there’s a way. This is the UK, you can never predict the weather, really.

“We’re all really excited for it. We’re all feeling fit.”
