Docs for Tots get on their bikes
The Docs for Tots are: Tim Leary, GP Caimin Hardiman, Jeremy Turner, Hugh Wilson, Mark Andrews and Matt Lawes.
From the comfortable bosom of Norfolk, the idea of cycling 77 miles from Cambridge, via two counties, is a daunting prospect. However the promise of being home again the same evening, with no need for travel documents, has reassured them all. We are ready for the challenge.
