Property Expert Peddling Across The British Isles For Charity

A rural property surveyor is undertaking a challenge of a lifetime by cycling the entire length of Great Britain for a worthwhile cause.

Robert McCabe, Partner and Rural Surveyor at Shropshire-based Nock Deighton Agricultural LLP, and his 23 year old son James, are cycling 930 miles from John O'Groats, the most northern point of mainland Scotland, to Land's End, the most southwestwardly point of England, to raise £2000 for Prostate Cancer UK.

The pair will begin their challenge this Saturday (23rd March), a mission that will see them cycle 104 miles a day, completing the entire route in just nine days. The father and son team decided to cycle for Prostate Cancer UK after seeing a number of friends and family develop the disease. The charity is dedicated to raising the profile of the cancer, funding ground-breaking research and providing support to men diagnosed with the illness.

Robert McCabe commented: "We decided to undertake the challenge as the charity is one that is close to our hearts, I have lost both an uncle and a friend to prostate cancer, and it is devastating just how many people have either been diagnosed with the disease or know someone that has. This is the first time I have cycled so many miles in one go, but I have undertaken the a number of times and James cycled from St Malo to Santander last summer, so we're certainly up to the task"

Robert, who has been cycling recreationally for the past four years, has been preparing for the challenge by cycling 50 miles every Sunday for the past six weeks and also using a turbo trainer three times a week to ensure he is accustomed to the road resistance.

Graham Taylor, Managing Director of Nock Deighton, said: "We are extremely proud that a valued member of our team is undertaking such an enormous challenge for a very worthwhile cause. Robert and James have raised a staggering £1230 so far, and I would encourage anyone interested in donating to visit Robert's just giving page:, to help them hit their target. We all wish Robert and James the best of luck for the cycle challenge and can't wait to hear all about it on their return."
