A man from the Isle of Wight is raising money for prostate cancer research by taking on three difficult cycling challenges.

47-year-old Ian Gregory has registered disabilities, but is set on raising money to help increase awareness of prostate cancer and fund research efforts to find a cure for the disease.

Ian was inspired to take action after his relative Don Exell died in 2010, following a case of undetected prostate cancer that he battled for 4 years.

The ‘3 ton challenge’ includes a 117 mile ride in France, the 100 mile Prudential Ride through London and Surrey in July, and the 104 mile Plymouth Gran Fondo.

The money he raises from sponsorship will go to Prostate Cancer UK.
