A cyclist from Pinner (England) plans to make a wheel difference to children suffering from cancer and leukemia when he sets off on a sponsored bike ride across Cuba next month.

Michael Decent will begin his 260-mile cycle challenge along with nine other riders on Christmas Eve, and hopes to raise up to 5,000 for the charity Cancer and Leukemia in Childhood.

The 27-year-old said: “I have never done anything like this before, but I can think of no better challenge to push myself to the limit while helping raise money for children with cancer.”

Michael, who has previously run the London Marathon, will set off in Havana, spending five days peddling on roads and paths on his way to his final destination of Trinidad. The money raised will fund specialist who care for children suffering from the diseases at home and in hospital.
