Bob Holdsworth plans a possibly suicidal bike ride and appeals for sponsorship.

“In a moment of possibly certifiable insanity”, Prof. Bob Holdsworth (Durham University), at the ripe old age of 53, has decided to ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats bike over 10 days from August 28. He tells Geoscientist: “I am riding to get sponsorship for Marie Curie Cancer Care, and in memory of my aunt, Sheila Holdsworth, who died from Leukaemia in 2012”.

To help you sponsor him, Bob has set up a ‘Just Giving’ page. It is easy to use for online payments. As Bob says: “Be assured that the next few months will be likely significantly painful for me – as will the main event – and surely, that’s got to be worth a few quid!”
