A team of cyclists from businesses across Exeter will be taking part in a charity bike ride from London to Amsterdam, including three members of staff from Exeter City FC.

The team, which includes the City hospitality and events manager Jake Wood, finance assistant Lynn Travis and media manager Simon Larkins, are taking on the 145-mile trip to the Dutch capital to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.

The annual event, which is organized by the EFL and League Managers Association, sees football fans from around the country join some famous faces from the game as they pedal their way from Leo Valley VeloPark in London to Harwich on day one before catching the overnight ferry to Hook, in Holland.

From there the group will cycle the 60 miles to Amsterdam on day two. Last year the event attracted the likes of former Leeds United and Preston North End manager Simon Grayson, ex-England captain Terry Butcher and QPR director of football Les Ferdinand. This year the event will take place on June 1 and 2. The divisional director of Mi-space AJ Eaton, who is taking part in the event, said: “Playing our part in the local community is a key priority of our business and I’m delighted that Mi-space can support such a worthwhile cause.

“Seeing the statistic that one man every 45 minutes dies from this disease proves that there is still so much to do so it’s crucial we continue to beat the drum and continue to raise awareness.”

The Exeter team is as follows: AJ Eaton (divisional director of Mi-space), Mike Borkowski (business development manager of Midas Group), Matt Howells (business development manager of Mi-space), John Wood, Sam Heritage (operations coordinator Mi-space), Dave Tasker (Test Valley BC), Ben Lee (Hampshire Constabulary), Stuart Shaw (managing director LWS Interior Solutions) and Matt Trapnell (Hyundai), Simon Larkins (media manager Exeter City), Jake Wood (hospitality and events manager Exeter City), Lynn Travis (finance assistant Exeter City). The team are proud to be supported by Route2Bike shop in Topsham, RecoverFit gym, owned by Ryan Brunt in Marsh Barton, Thrifty Car Rental, Ashley House, Commercial Drone Training, Girling Jones, Robert Price Builders, Exeter Airport, JEM Scaffolding, LWS Interior Solutions, Blue Cedar Homes, Ashfords LLP, South West Business Connections, NPS Group, SPS Envirowall, Travis Perkins Managed Solutions, Austin Hobbs and One Planet Consultants.
