A TEAM of five cyclists from subsea engineering firm Viper Subsea will take to the hills for charity this weekend.

The team will cycle in relay non-stop from the company’s Portishead office to Land’s End and back again in aid of Cancer Research UK and Motivation, an international development charity based in Backwell, which supports people with mobility disabilities.

The team aims to complete the endurance ride of more than 440 miles within 36 hours.

Viper Subsea project manager and lead fundraiser Scott Ferrier said: “Two of us will be cycling at any one time and we are aiming for each pair to tackle around 30 miles each before handing over the reins to the next pair.

There will be no beds, no ice-creams, just cycling.” The team hopes to raise at least £2,000.
