In his final week of preparation, Tynan Scope is hoping City fans push his donations to the top...
Coventry City corporate sales manager Tynan Scope is in the final stages of preparation for the London to Amsterdam bike ride in aid of Prostate Cancer.
Scope will be saddling up to take on a mammoth 150-mile trip from London to Amsterdam, alongside plenty of other riders including former England and AC Milan striker Luther Blissett for Prostate Cancer UK.
He takes on the challenge next Friday but hopes to get Coventry City to the top of the individual donation leader board before he sets off to Holland.
Tynan said: "I've done a lot of training for the bike ride, including my fund raising efforts at City's away game at Leyton Orient and at the training ground, but it probably still isn't enough.
"Last weekend, I rode 61 miles on Friday and then 40 miles on Saturday to try and replicate the 90 miles on day one and the further 60 miles on day two of the ride. My knees are still sore now!
"I have came off my bike once and have the grazes to prove it but nothing will deter me from completing the challenge as it is in aid of such a worthy cause.
"I have had a lot of donations so far but I'm hoping in the final week a late surge from City fans will get me to the top of the leader-board. I've raised £1810 so far but hoping to get over £2000 before next Friday.
"Of course, being joined by City fan Andy Burton is a huge plus point and I've enjoyed the training we've done together."
Over 160 riders are taking part in the challenge from across the Football League to raise money for the official charity partner, Prostate Cancer UK.
Every hour, one man dies from prostate cancer and over 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year which is a quarter of all new cases of cancer in UK men.
